Added to JGarden:
Designed by Masami Matsuda in 1975, the garden was restored to its original state in the early 1990's, again with Mr. Matsuda help. The garden includes a tea house with gardens available for viewing from a handicapped accessible ramp. The tea house is open only for tea ceremonies on two Saturdays a month to those with reservations. The tea master has studied tea more than 8 years and is a certified instructor, volunteering her time for the tea ceremonies. Anyone on the garden's mailing list can attend a tea ceremony. To attend a tea ceremony, reservations must be made when forms are sent to names on the mailing list early in the year. The reservation requests are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis and members of the 'Friends of the Conservatory' receive preference. Membership in the Friends is as low as $25. Volunteers staff the garden and when possible, guests can receive a tour of the tea house and gardens.
The path of fallen leaves
Leads to the graves on the hill,
And stops there.
