Travel Tuesday: Holland Park


When I was in London with my mum, we dropped into Holland Park in Chelsea. All of the gardens are really beautiful but for me the main attraction was the Kyoto Garden because before I started University I spent a year living in Japan. The garden was designed in 1992 to celebrate the Japan festival in London. It was so nice walking around the Kyoto garden, like a slice of Japan in London.
 
Next to the Kyoto Garden is a Fukushim Garden which was made in 2012 to commemorate the gratitude of the Japanese people to British people for their support after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. If you ever go to Holland Park make sure you find the Kyoto Garden and Fukushima Garden, they're really beautiful and its cheaper than a flight to Japan! 












Have you ever been to Holland Park?
