The garden is a hill and pond style, honoring Olympia's sister city Yashiro, Japan. Classic gates, built without nails, open into a walled space where splashing water muffles the sound of the city. Smooth stones contrast with lacy maples and spiky clumps of iris. Two cutstone lanterns and a 13-tier pagoda were gifts to the garden from the city of Yashiro.
At the hut of the mountain
Where the pine is piled
White snow in the garden
Peaking at the treetop
