Nagoya Station 

[Shirotori Garden]

This garden of streams and ponds, among the largest in the Tokai region, tells a “Story of Water”

This is a Japanese-style garden of 3.7 hectares, created on the site of the World Design Expo. The garden is in the chisen-kaiyushiki style with geographical features of the Chubu area as its subject, and the theme of the garden is the "Water Story" told by headwaters on Mt. Ontake as they flow down the Kiso River and into Ise Bay. Please enjoy the seasonal atmosphere created by the flowers, greenery, autumn foliage and yukitsuri (anti-snow measures) in the garden's representations of nature's hills and water.
