A news article about the inauguration in Portuguese can be read here (visit link) and below there is the English translation.

"Party of Japan and Japanese Garden Inauguration in Lisbon!
Next Saturday, October 1, Lisbon will be more colorful with the inauguration of the Japanese Garden in Belém, near the Museum of Popular Art!
The Japanese Garden was created in September 2004, when the Japanese Embassy began the 461 cherry trees plantation on site to celebrate the friendship between the two countries. However, for various reasons, the cherry trees did not grow and the space was abandoned. Since then, the Lisbon nicknamed the local "Pseudo-Japanese Garden" due to the presence of nothing more than a dry pitch.
Recently, the space has been restored and the result can be seen on 1 October. The event will also be subject to the achievement of Japan's Party, which will follow after the reopening to 12pm, extending up to 21h.

Numa noticia sobre a inauguração do jardim pode-se lêr:

Festa do Japão e Inauguração do Jardim Japonês em Lisboa!
No próximo sábado, dia 1 de Outubro, Lisboa ficará mais colorida com a inauguração do Jardim Japonês em Belém, próximo ao Museu de Arte Popular!
O Jardim Japonês foi criado em Setembro de 2004, quando a Embaixada do Japão deu início à plantação de 461 cerejeiras no local, para comemorar a amizade entre os dois países. No entanto, por motivos vários, as cerejeiras não vingaram e o espaço ficou ao abandono. Desde essa data, os lisboetas apelidavam o local de “Pseudo-Jardim Japonês” devido à presença de nada mais que um relvado seco.Recentemente o espaço tem sido reabilitado e o resultado poderá ser visto no dia 1 de Outubro. O evento será também motivo para a realização da Festa do Japão, que seguirá após a reabertura às 12h, estendendo-se até às 21h.
