As I have said before Brussels is a very green city. Its Green Spaces ranging from huge tracts of forest like the Sonian Forest (Dutch: Zoniënwoud, French: Forêt de Soignes) to not so small gardens like those of the Abbey of La Cambre also known as Ter Kameren Abbey (French: Abbaye de La Cambre, Dutch: Abdij Ter Kameren) and Park / vegetable allotments tucked away in the centre of a residential block like Tillens Block (Carré de Tillen) in the Brussels Commune of Forest. Both of which I have covered in several past posts.
The Japanese Tower was built for the Brussels Expo of 1958 and afterwards it was taken down and rebuilt at Laken. Unfortunately it is not open to the public although as you get closer to the other entrance to the Greenhouse complex you get to see it across from a large pond.
