JGarden Description:Furman University is a private liberal arts college located on a beautiful campus five miles north of Greenville, South Carolina. Founded in 1826, Furman has established a reputation as a leading liberal arts college, ranked among the best in the country. It lies on a 750-acre campus that includes 28 major buildings, a 30-acre lake, formal rose garden, Japanese garden, golf course and football stadium.

Over the past 30 years, Furman University has maintained a unique relationship with Kansai Gaidai University in Hirakata, Hokkaido, Japan. The two schools run an active exchange program that sends students from both places overseas for extended stays. The Japanese garden on the campus was developed out of this relationship. It is located on Roc Ford Road on the shore of the campus lake.

The current state of this garden is not known, but the University recently announced that it had been selected by Monrovia Nurseries (based in California) and Southern Living to become the recipient of a portion of Monrovia's collection. David Slawson, has been chosen to design and upgrade the site. Preliminary sketches and concept plans have been completed and cost estimates are being developed. 




Departed the prince --
Vanished the smoke
Of Shiogama;
Lonely the beach
Along its length.



Kimi masade
Kemuri taenishi
Shiogama no
Ura sabishiku mo
Mie wataru ka na.
