This garden and Cultural Center are the result of a labor of love on the part of Michael and Dianne Alexanian that dates back to 1989. The Center is now the home Shakunage Consulting, (literally, 'rhododendron', the prefectural flower of Shiga, the sister state for Michigan) a multi-disciplinary site for studying calligraphy, ikebana, iajutsu as well as providing cultural services to the West Michigan region.
