Japanese Friendship Garden

Japanese Friendship Public Garden, Auckland

The Japan Friendship Garden located in Western Springs is literally a hidden gem. The reimagined garden has a tea pavilion, waterfall and pond. It features over 1800 native Japanese and New Zealand species and incorporates items preserved from the original garden including four bonsai trees, paving stones, lanterns, a water basin and the entrance. The garden has supporters, The Fukuoka Garden – who are lobbyists advocating for the continuing maintenance of the garden.

  • Open:  Summer – 10.00am – 6.30pm, Winter – 10.00am – 5.30pm
  • Free admission
  • Access from the zoo’s car park entrance off Motions Road
