JGarden Description:A gift to the city people of Columbus from the Japanese prefecture of Osaka in 1992, this garden is designed using landscape plants selected for the central Ohio climate. A white gravel "river" flows beneath a bridge among flowering shrubs, Japanese maples, and hardy bambo, to surround an island of venerable spruce trees.

Gift shop and café also available. 




My lodge is at the foot
Of the Moon Waiting Hill -
Almost I regret
When the shortening hill shadow
At length disappears.



Waga ie wa
Tsukimachi yama no
Fumoto nite
