JGarden Description:The garden is a hill and pond style, honoring Olympia's sister city Yashiro, Japan. Classic gates, built without nails, open into a walled space where splashing water muffles the sound of the city. Smooth stones contrast with lacy maples and spiky clumps of iris. Two cutstone lanterns and a 13-tier pagoda were gifts to the garden from the city of Yashiro. 




We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
