Worlds Most Northern Japanese Garden to Appear in Irkutsk

A Japanese garden may appear on Konny Island in the center of Irkutsk, in the basin of River Angara.
      An artificial pond, a long walking track, tea gardens, a school for esthetic education and a nursery for cultivation of Asian plants will be created there.
      The garden area will make about three hectares. Japanese gardens differ from all others with a considerable number of symbolic elements. Lots of them have been adopted from Buddhist and Taoist religion and philosophy: stone pagoda and lanterns, tea-houses, water and stones, and sakura trees.
      Presently the most northern Japanese garden in the world (as per the latitude) is located in Canadian Vancouver, but it is much warmer there than in Irkutsk. Therefore the Irkutsk project will become the most northern Japanese garden in the world. There is only one similar garden in Russia and it is located in Moscow.
