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.

The main attraction here at the Japanese Village Bukit Tinggi is this little Japanese Tea House where you can have a Japanese Tea ceremony for a fee or rent a Kimono for some photos. The Japanese Tea Ceremony is available daily from 11 am until 4.30 pm.
A pine tree in the Japanese Village. Loves pine trees? Visit my blog on Kinabalu Pine Resort.
We ate here for our lunch, the Ryo Zan Tei Japanese Restaurant.
Spotted this Koinobori outside of the Japanese restaurant. Koinobori means “carp streamer” in Japanese which is carp-shaped wind socks. It is traditionally flown in Japan to celebrate Tango no Sekku, a traditional event which is now a national holiday.
You can choose to sit outside and enjoy the cold air and beautiful view of our rainforest while having your Japanese meal. We chose to eat inside though as outside is quite cold since it is raining that day.
