wind your way through the west sector of this noble estate, you'll
encounter a peaceful refuge in which expertly manicured trees, shrubs,
ferns, and mosses grow in their natural state. The Japanese flavor
within the gardens has an ancient history influenced by Shinto,
Buddhist, and Taoist philosophies. The combined emphasis of plants,
stones, and water are the essence of this Japanese Garden. It is
a haven of tranquil beauty that could possibly be one of the most
authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan.
