  • It all started with his Jusaku Fujita, the first Japanese residing in Fortaleza, which has a record. Horticulturalist and flower producer, married a cearense and raised his children here. Suffered the hardships of prejudice during World War II, when you had your beautiful garden and your House destroyed by fundamentalists demented, living in a small room, with a wife and young children for a while. But this time has passed and your family, as well as some other families of Japanese origin might thrive in Ceará. Is this small colony, in the person of Its Jusaku, this garden was erected in his honor. It is not more beautiful than others found in São Paulo, for example, but is facing the sea, being blessed by a delightful breeze, especially in late afternoon. The vertical garden and the gate are its main attractions. Worth the visit.

  • A late afternoon (after the Sun has lost a bit of strength) is the perfect time to enjoy a few moments of contemplation and relaxation in this garden. Reasonably well maintained, is a place at the same time unusual and interesting to visit at the edge of the fortress.

  • When the inauguration, amazing place, full of small details on every point. But with time, was getting degraded due to lack of maintenance and security on site.
