Traditional Japanese gardens and flower culture have been nurtured by the reverence and gratitude towards nature.
A Japanese exhibition with beautiful seasonal flowers from where one can view a traditional Japanese garden, a wholesome experience called “Teioku Ichinyo” will reveal the diversity and profound gardening culture combining tradition and new technology.

Japanese Garden

The Japanese garden is of the chisen style with a pond at its center. Water flowing from mountains passes over a three-stage waterfall and flows into a pond. This natural landscape is expressed through traditional gardening techniques using rock arrangements and plantings. In the west side of the garden, with the Japanese Pavilion representing a teahouse, a teahouse garden is located as a space for entertainment with a stone lantern and a stone washbasin. Colorful carp sent from the cities of Nagaoka and Ojiya in Niigata Prefecture where these carp originate swim in the pond.

Japan’s flower culture of living abundantly by incorporating nature in daily life is conveyed under the theme “Discovering Japan” by specialists in ikebana, bonsai, and flower arrangement using seasonal and alluring Japanese flowers and grasses. Exhibitors presented at the main central display will change every two weeks to portray four seasons of Japanese flowers and living.

Japanese Pavilion

The Japanese Pavilion is a steel frame structure enabling a large interior space without pillars. A large roof with wide eaves, a characteristic of Japanese architecture, protects the building from strong sun and rain. The Japanese garden can be viewed through large windows.

Blending in with nature

Blending in with nature

“Teioku Ichinyo” is the fundamental idea of the Japanese Pavilion where the garden and environment and architecture exist together in harmony. Eaves emphasizing a horizontal line and the roof with a gentle slope are covered by a sharp and light metal roof easing the tension on the garden while connecting the garden and the architecture allowing them to blend in with nature.

A rich space of "Teioku Ichinyo"

A modern interpretation of an “engawa (veranda-like space)” that serves as a connection between the traditional interior and exterior space is made from huge sliding windows with no railing to divide the two areas and a deep eave creating a comfortable space filled with light and breeze. This is a manifestation of “Teioku Ichinyo” blending the exhibition hall and the garden together. The natural space will serve as a pleasant communication area where people come to gather.

Continuous window frame connecting interior and exterior

On the garden side of the exhibition hall, interior and exterior are binded by the large continuous window frame with no railing on the floor. The deep eaves lighten the view of the garden allowing you to feel the change of season and of the sky while staying inside. The cut out view through the window made by the horizontally extended eaves and floor is called a "borrowed landscape".

A large space without pillars with a width of 10 m, a depth of 20 m and a ceiling height of 4.5 m is made possible by adopting a heavy steel structure as the main structure. The deep large roof of the eaves protects the exhibition facilities and flowers from the harsh natural environment such as borax in spring season and harsh sunlight from the west in summer days during the exposition period. A highly durable and high quality building using Japanese technology, we will provide an excellent exhibition space with superb airtightness and insulation.
