This tranquil and beautiful setting features more than 1,500 tons of hand selected stone, footbridges, more than 50 varieties of plants, flowing streams and waterfall, and a pond with over 300 koi fish. The garden was designed by landscape architects from Himeji, Japan. The tea ceremony, conducted by a Tea Master from the Urasenke Foundation, is based on an elegant ritual dating back to 11th century Japan.
