JGarden Description:The Japanese Embassy used to give private tours of its small garden and tea-house, as well as the Old Ambassador's Residence, but these are apparently no longer available. The tea-house is situated in a gravel-and-moss garden styled after the famous Kyoto garden, Ryoanji. It is surrounded by cherry trees, which also line the walk to the garden.

Spirit turtles are carrying the
Fan-chang island on their heads.
Its high peaks rise to majestic heights.
Immortals flutter along the edges of
      the island.
Jade maidens play on the slopes of
      the mountains.

  Ts'ao Chih
