Photographer's Note

I took a photo last fall of The Nishinomiya Japanese Garden. Decided to go back and take photo of the garden during the summer.

The Nishinomiya Japanese Garden was completed in 1974 and symbolizes the friendship of Spokane, Washington, for its sister city, Nishinomiya, Japan. A well-known Japanese landscape architect, Nagao Sakurai, who at one time was in charge of the Imperial Palace grounds, was enlisted to design the garden in 1967. Construction of the waterfall and pond began in 1990. Late in 1973, after Nagao Sukurai suffered a stroke, two landscape architects from Kobe, Japan, Shosuke Nagai and Hirohiko Kawai, were contracted to complete the garden, which was dedicated by both cities on May 17, 1974.
