In Japan, the water lily grows in garden ponds during the warm season. I would come across them here and there, but what I saw in Kobe Animal Kingdom was something really outstanding! A huge indoor pond was full of lilies of all colors and sorts. It’s impossible to express their beauty in words and even in photos! Not only was I excited about the wonderful lily pond, but also by the many visitors at Kobe Animal Kingdom as well. I bet lilies grow here all year round.
