Councillor Nick Paget-Brown said: "I am delighted that we are reopening the Kyoto Gardens following such an excellent makeover by the gardeners. I would like to thank them, the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce, Mr Okuhara and Mr Kitayama for coming over this time and also for all the support they have given in the last 20 years."The Kyoto Garden was originally opened in September 1991 by HRH Prince Charles and His Imperial Highness The Crown Prince of Japan as a part of the Japan Festival celebrations. It is in the style of `kaiyushiki' (a stroll garden) and was built by the Kyoto Garden Association over three months that year with the financial assistance of the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce.
