The wide entrance and the gate designed to match the garden’s collection of plants and flowers native to Singapore welcome visitors at “Miyakoh Botanic Garden Aoshima”. The palm trees rising into the blue sky, the carpets of green grass, and the flowerbeds with tropical flowers convey an air of elegance and dignity. The ipê and jacaranda trees and the other subtropical plants change their colors according to season, creating vividly colorful scenery to delight the eyes of visitors.
At the garden’s “Palo Borracho Café” you can enjoy smoothies made from papaya, mango and other tropical fruit grown in the prefecture, under the white parasols on the wooden deck. If you visit the Glasshouse, at the back you can see a statue of Merlion, the symbol of Singapore, created with the permission of the Singapore Tourism Board. Like the original in Singapore, this Merlion is also turned to a longitude of 88 degrees east, so you could say that Singapore’s Merlion sees Aoshima’s Merlion from the back! The statue is a symbol of the cooperation between the two countries over the past 50 years and their blooming relationship.
