Japanese Village Bukit Tinggi

Japanese Village Bukit Tinggi Trip

Japanese Village Bukit Tinggi is our next stop after visiting Colmar Tropicale. After walking around and some photo shooting, we took a shuttle bus to Japanese Village. It is recommended to take the shuttle bus in case the parking at Japanese Village is full. Japanese Village is located 3,500 feet above sea level and the air here is cold. Its’ garden was designed by Kaio Ariizumi, a renowned Japanese architect with a team of 22 skilled Japan craftsmen.  This garden is in a tropical rainforest and the main attractions here are Japanese Tea House, Botanical Garden, Tatami Spa, Ryo Zan Tei Japanese Restaurant and Ume Tatami Suite. Guest can join the Tea Ceremony or rent a kimono for photography.
