Parque Yamaguchi (Yamaguchi Park)
An approach to Japanese culture in the form of a park for an afternoon of relaxation.
Twinning with Japan.
One of the most surprising places in Pamplona is the huge Japanese garden that seems like it was taken out of an oriental tale. The 'Parque Yamaguchi', which was designed by Japanese landscapers in 1997, has an area of 4,000 square metres that are set around an artificial pond with 600 species of plants, 400 trees and 500 tonnes of stone for making the paths that connect the typical characteristics of these types of gardens. Around here, you'll find the classic 'azumaya' (a little house in the middle of the pond), 'taki' (waterfall), 'suhama' (beach) or the delicate 'ishibasi' and 'yatsubashi' (bridges) on which you can observe the beauty of the landscape design where nothing is left to chance and everything is in tune with Japanese serenity, in the middle of the busy city. In the 'Parque Yamaguchi' you'll not only find an oasis including a geyser where you can spend a pleasant evening, you can also visit the interesting planetarium.
