The visit this time is to Japanese Garden. This is the visit during my trip to Ipoh. My expectation perhaps is too high and I feel like the garden has not much to see.

The city of Ipoh is located about 200 km north of Kuala Lumpur. Journey through the North South Expressway (NSE or PLUS Highway) takes a breezy 2 1/2 hours through scenic rolling valleys, palm oil plantations and limestone hills of Peninsula Malaysia. Distances from other major cities: Penang (2 hours), Johor Bharu (6 hours), Singapore (6 1/2 hours) and Kuantan (5 hours).

The Japanese Garden is located well inside Taman D.R. Seenivasagam which is located on Jalan Dato' Onn Jaafar and close to the Ipoh General Hospital.
