Three of the essential elements used to create a Japanese garden are stone, the structure of the landscape; water, representing life-giving force; and plants, providing color and changes throughout the seasons. Secondary elements include pagodas, stone lanterns, water basins, arbors and bridges. Japanese gardens are carefully designed to create natural art that can inspire calm, renewal, discovery and an invigorated soul. Enjoy this guided tour of the gardens. Lunch at the garden, tours and motor coach
transportation are included.
