Before I came back to Singapore, I was involved in a short interstitial for Hello Japan Channel for Chinzanso so this is not the first time I have visited their hotel and garden. Filming was taken in Summer as it was a different type of set up with lots of summer decorations like the wind chimes. Chinzanso also offers Japanese tea ceremony experience for tourists so you can check it out if you want to experience some Japanese culture when visiting it.


Check out the video if you have time.
