JGarden Description:This small coastal garden (it is located at the entrance to a beach park), was created to celebrate the centennial year of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrant to Canada. Kuno Gihei was from Wakayama-ken. The garden was created with the support of the B.C.-Wakayama Kenjin-kai (Friendship Association).





While the sound
Of the cascade
Long since has ceased,
We still hear the murmur
Of its name.



Taki no oto wa
Taete hisashiku
Nari nuredo
Nakoso nagarete
Nao kikoe kere.
