What a beautiful place to walk and contemplate. We have a friend who works there part time and he gave us a guided tour. It is magnificent! It is the most authentic Japanese gardens in the U.S. and is stunning. There was an Art Show going on when we were there which was nice since it gave us a chance to warm up inside for a bit. The small streams, koi ponds, trails, plants are all placed with a purpose and represent certain ideas and elements. The view of Portland downtown from the top of the gardens is incredible. I would love to go back in the spring when all the trees and flowers are in bloom It must be just incredible that time of year.
