The Japanese Garden is a one acre area west of the Italian Gardens. A curving path leads to a small wooden footbridge that crosses a dry-stone stream. A genuine Sukiya (teahouse) with a low-pitched roof sits among Japanese maples and flowering rhododendrons. Takeo Shiota designed an authentic "Chaniwa" (tea garden), a series of little hills planted with effectively grouped low trees and shrubbery. Stone lanterns stand on the pebble-cemented banks. East and West meet at the garden border, where Japanese cherry trees and Jersey pines mingle.
