JGarden Description:Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Tondabayashi, Japan, have enjoyed an international friendship for many years. In 1959, ministers from Bethlehem and Tondabayashi (which is 18 miles southeast of Osaka) first discussed a partnership between the two cities. The following year, an exchange of gifts began, with Bethlehem sending objects representing its history, industries, and government, and Tondabayashi giving 40 pictures painted by elementary school children. Personal visits followed and, on April 10, 1964, the formal relationship was established.

The garden is located near Bethlehem's library. 




I had thought there was
but a single chrysanthemum here.
Who could have planted
the other one made, there in the
depths of Osawa pond?
