Japanese Tea Garden

Japanese Friendship Garden

What a beautiful garden right in the middle of the big city. Stroll across the bridge and watch the fish in the koi pond, look at the Japanese trees and plants. There's a gorgeous tea house the overlooks the garden and the fountains. I'll have to go back for some tea. I was reminded of a tea service class I took a few years ago. It was very quiet, very slow, very peaceful, just like this place, and so unlike all of us hurried, crazy people, whining that the latte is taking too long to get at Starbucks. So, head downtown. Breathe. Stroll. It's worth the trip.
