A trip to Seattle provided an opportunity to visit
the formal Japanese Garden in the Washington Park Arboretum on the
south side of Union Bay.
formal Japanese Garden was designed and constructed in 1960 under
the supervision of world famous Japanese garden designers Juki Iida
and Nobumasa Kitamura.
580 large granite rocks were selected and moved from Snoqualmi Pass
in the Cascade Range to enhance the water features and garden.
