JGarden Description:Ryo Kawate, representative of Japanese government, requested the design in 1987/1988. Work began in 1989 with materials brought from across Cuba. Sited in a location with view of local mountain range. It is designed around a large pond with waterfall composed of lava rock. A viewing pavilion (ukimi-do) was constructed on a small peninsula jutting into the lake. 




Since before anyone remembers
It has been clear
Shining like silver
Though the moonlight penetrates it and the wind ruffles it
No trace of either remains.
Today I would not dare to expound the secret of the stream bed
But I can tell you
That the blue dragon is coiled there.
