The Japanese Garden

The Japanese Garden is a 6.5 acres (2.6 ha) public Japanese garden.


-"garden of water and fragrance."

As one first enters The Japanese Garden, one walks through a dry Zen meditation garden (Karesansui) containing a large grass-covered mound, representing Tortoise Island, a symbol of longevity, and a Three Buddhas (Trikaya) arrangement of stones. Next comes an expansive chisen, or "wet strolling" garden with waterfalls, lakes, trees, and stone lanterns. At path's end is the Shoin Building with an authentic 4½ tatami (7 m²) tea house and adjacent tea garden.
