    The beautiful Japanese Garden

    Its so quite and peaceful in these gardens, with the waterfall, little bridge and clear ponds with their shimmering koi carp.

    You cannot eat or smoke in the gardens and bicycle owners have to leave them chained up just inside the gates.

    Japanese Garden

    by tweetycaro Written Mar 12, 2004

    The name of the garden is Shin Kai Tei.

    Shin means 'profound, discerning, learned'. It refers to Japan and Belgium's rich history and stands for tradition. Shin is also symbolic for the rich history of the actual site of the garden: the gardens of the Royal villa.

    Kai means 'sea, ocean'. Japan is an archipelago and Oostende a city by the sea. Seeing the sun rise or sink into the sea brings man and nature closer together. The sea is the source of all life for Japan and Oostende alike.

    Tei means 'garden' as well as 'sanctuary'. It is a holy place, ideally suited to finding peace of mind, becoming one with nature, a place that embraces the visitor wholeheartedly.

    Freely translated, our garden is 'Deep Sea Garden'.

    Shin Kai Tei is a garden to walk in: strolling along you will discover several landscapes.
