JGarden Description:Historic preservation district was location where UPS was founded. As part of anniversary commemoration, this garden was commissioned by the Anna E. Casey Foundation. It is a 30x50m site designed so that visitors would descend from road, only lifting their gaze when the waterfall became visible. The site has one waterfall in the SW corner, cascading into 2 falls. The other sides have iron fences. Yoshikuni felt that to succeed at this type of large water feature, selecting the right stone was the key. He traveled extensively through the region to find the right stone. Selected stones were polished to achieve the correct look and reduce splash. 




Chanting the Nembutsu,
Coolness fills
Fields and mountains.
