Stroll the gardens of Jardin del Corazon, a Japanese-themed park dedicated to the twinning of La Serena and the Japanese city of Tenri. Built in 1994 with support from Japanese mining companies in Chile, the garden was designed by architect Akira Ohira.

  • Beautiful park Japanese in La Serena, careful and very well maintained that brings a corner of peace and tranquility. You can go quietly and there are places to sit and watch. Very well accomplished architecture with signs that are explaining the sites in Japanese and Spanish and Japanese. The entrance is worth only $1,000 pesos. Totally recommended

  • The architecture of this park Japanese (actually created by manga) is worthy of admiration, with its green meadows and beautiful trees, in the we can find from swans to turtles. Bellisimo.
