Hey Seattle family and friends. Have you ever been to the Seattle Japanese Gardens? I remember when they were created in 1960, but never had a chance to visit them. Have you?
You won’t find a more serene place in town. No wonder it is one of the most highly regarded Japanese-style gardens in North America and attracts over 100,000 visitors annually.
Gardens in Japan have long been regarded as an important art form that’s essential to life. This 3.5-acre garden features a style developed in the late-16th to early-17th centuries known as stroll gardens
They were designed by renown landscape designer Juki Iida. Although he designed over 3,000 gardens in Tokyo, this is the only large scale one that has survived.
I didn’t take this shot. As beautiful as it was today, the colors are much more spectacular other times of the year.
