View of Zen Garden with bonsai and azalea.
Zen Garden with Bonsai Tree and Azalea.
Located behind the Pagoda, this area was laid out in 1953 by one of Japan's leading landscape architects, Nagao Sukurai, who designed the Japanese gardens at the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Exposition. This garden is a modern version of the Muromachi period's (1392-1573) dry landscape, known as kare sansu in Japanese. The Zen Garden symbolizes in miniature a mountain scene, with stone waterfall and gravel river. The white gravel winds its way around miniature islands and forests. An impressive azalea, its blossoms highlighted by dappled sunlight, rises behind a splendid bonsai tree.
