This garden was designed by Haruko Seki, Makoto Saito and sponsored by Royal Palm Residences Seychelles, Urban Regenerate Association of Niigata The garden was inspired by the architecture of the Katsura Imperial Villa in Kyoto and it is designed as an interpretation of traditional Japanese concepts. The garden focuses on the moon that is reflected and captured in a pond, which is to be looked at from a viewing platform. There is a great deal of symbolism in this garden where everything is placed in perfect harmony. I thought it was too impractical and too much water.
