JGarden Description:Tried to visit this site in October 2001 after seeing a note and photo of it in an airline travel magazine, but from asking folks at the Guime (who were on strike at the time), the tea pavilion at the annex (just past the Goethe Institute, up the Avenue d'Iena from the main Guime Museum) is not yet completed and it may be a few months before it will be open. The tea pavilion was designed by architect Nakamura Masao and built by master carpenter Takaaki Yamamoto. Many of the materials were imported specially from Japan. The garden was built several years before, in 1992. You supposed to also be able to see the garden from rue de Lubeck, but I have not had a chance to check this.

If you can't get into the tea pavilion and garden at the annex, don't despair; the main museum is dedicated to Asian Art and is one of the finest in the world.

Iena Metro stop 




With the south wind a gentle goddess came.
She soaked the bronze, she soaked the fountain,
She soaked the swallow's belly and its feathers of gold.
She hugged the tide, lapped the sand, drank the fish.
Secretly she soaked the temple, the bath-house, the theatre,
The confusion of her platinum lyre --
  the tongue of the goddess -- secretly.
Soaked my tongue.
