Japanese Garden is one of few traces left after the World Exibition in 1913 that remained in Wroclaw’s Szczytnicki Park. The garden prepared and arranged by the enthusiast of Japan, count Fritz von Hochberg, with the help of a Japanese gardener, Mankichi Arai, was a pearl of the exibition. After the exibition most of the buildings were destroyed because of their provisional nature and borrowed elements of the equipments. The paths, the shape of the pond and the south part of the garden with its hilly landscape, watercourses and flora were saved.

In 1994 Wroclaw authorities started the renovation of the Japanese Garden with the substantive help form the embassy of Japan in Warsaw.

Due to the presence of Japanese specialists the whole projects and works correspond to the original Japanese garden art. Each element has its own place and meaning – often invisible for Europeans.
