The Japanese Garden called Heiwa-En (Peace Garden) at Hammersmith Park in Shepherds Bush, London is celebrating its 100th anniversary in style.

The garden was created in 1910 as a part of the great Japan-British Exhibition in which Meiji Japan fully demonstrated her technology and culture to the West for the first time.

The Japanese garden was created by a Japanese garden designer with genuine materials brought from Japan.

Today, the garden still exists and has been refurbished by Hammersmith & Fulham Council, owner of the park, with technical advice from Japanese garden experts and Anglo-Japanese voluntary groups.


The Hammersmith & Fulham Council together with the Japan-British Exhibition 100 Committee (Anglo-Japanese Voluntary Group chaired by Professor Ian Nish) is holding a Japanese Matsuri-style garden party to celebrate the centenary of the Exhibition at the newly refurbished Heiwa-En on Sunday, 23rd of May.
