It is a relatively small space, but imbued with quiet beauty in every nook and cranny. The path loops around an emerald pond populated by lazy, well-fed koi and patrolled by mallards and herons. Waterfalls trickle amid carefully manicured bamboo, bonsai, and a rock garden. Stop by, shed your worries, the world will be a better place for it.
