The botanical gardens include two Japanese-style sub-gardens. Takamine Garden highlights the Anelli Pond as well as stone lanterns, Japanese maples, sedge and water iris.

The second garden is the Moon-Viewing Garden and Waterfall Garden. Water flows in a small stream from the Waterfall Garden to the pond at the Moon-Viewing Garden, which was a 1993 gift from the local chapter of Ikebana International. Japanese cherry trees bloom in late January or early February. 




A one-foot waterfall too
Makes these sounds and those,
While cooling in the evening.
