“A lovely spot - whatever the season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The Himeji Garden is a small but lovely oasis in Adelaide's south parklands, whatever the season. Even if there are few flowers, the assortment of greenery and more formal Japanese aspects both give a pleasant, restful feeling. The high fence keeps the world at bay - and keeps you away from it. Perhaps, if you can, visit it EVERY season, to see its variety.

“Tranquil and lovely garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Easy parking on city fringe, the Himeji Gardens are a taste of Japan in Adelaide. No entry fee, not crowded. Not large, so don't need to allow a lot of time unless you just want to sit and enjoy the space.

“Quiet Oasis in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The Japanese Himeji Garden is the perfect place to spend some quiet moments. Whenever I am nearby I try to spend a few minutes (or longer) just sitting in the Zen garden or watching the gentle water features. If you are stressed then visit the garden and feel the stress evaporate. You will leave renewed and refreshed.
The Himeji Garden is one of Adelaide's best kept secrets.

“Tranquil secret in the heart of Adelaide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Friend and I took our 3& 5 year old children to Himeji. Beautiful, tranquil, interesting. Great place to read a Japanese themed book and talk about Japanese culture in a non threatening, easygoing way.
