The Indo-Japanese garden also known as Pune-Okayama Friendship garden is located in the bustling area of Sinhagad Road, Pune. The beautiful garden spans a 10-acre land. It is also known as Pu La Deshpande garden. It has a natural flow of water from the canal and is spread across the garden. The good part about the garden is you cannot walk around on the grass, there is a walking path designed for walking, and the grass is protected with bamboo fences.
This garden has been built keeping in mind the 300-year-old Okayama’s Zen garden. The entry fee for the garden is about 5 rs, but if you are a resident of Pune and live around that area, you can get a monthly membership of rs 50. The garden is small and can be covered quite quickly, but the serene beauty captures your attention, and you may feel like sitting in the park for a long time.
If you are looking for that perfect evening with just greenery all around you, do visit this. If you are not from Pune and plan to visit Pune soon, do not miss this spot.
