Japanese Village, Berjaya Hills

Stepping into the Japanese village was a little bit like stepping into a new world. I was surprised that they recreated the whole Zen Garden, complete with perfectly carved walkway up into the Japanese Tea House. Inside it was a bridge that leads you to a rest stop, and you can purchase RM1 for a small packet of fish pellets. Yeap, you get to feed the Koi fishes....

I was surprised that they recreated the whole Zen Garden, complete with perfectly carved walkway up into the Japanese Tea House. Inside it was a bridge that leads you to a rest stop, and you can purchase RM1 for a small packet of fish pellets. Yeap, you get to feed the Koi fishes.

These Koi fishes are all well-fed, but it was fun trying to feed them with pellets, as some of these fishes are very near our toes. I like to feed them by throwing it at a direction, and looking at the Koi fishes all nomming for the little pellet.

But that is not all about the Japanese tea house. You can rent a kimono suit at RM20 for the ladies who’d like to try on one, without suffering from all the layers and layers of cloth. It was basically for taking pictures only. Guys are not left out too as they can adorn the traditional suit at the same price.

After you finish exploring the Japanese tea house. You can walk back out and follow the signboard to the botanical garden. Or, rest and have a Japanese feast at Ryo Zan Tei Japanese restaurant. No doubt, it was literally translated as “Hut at a Cool Mountain”, and that restaurant provides excellent mountain and greenery scenes. Here are two pictures taken by Ephyon using Sofia:

The cool breeze, the whole Japanese like environment, the food. Everything here is great. It should be a very nice place to enjoy, walk around, take pictures, feed koi fishes. Nothing fancy. But that’s the whole purpose of the Japanese village in the first place.

This place is definitely a place solely for relaxation.
