“With its waterfalls, bridges, and stone paths that wander among
crepe myrtles, azaleas, Japanese maples, dogwoods, and cherry
trees, the Japanese Garden is a peaceful hideaway in Houston’s
Hermann Park. The garden was designed by world-renowned
landscape architect Ken Nakajima, and uses natural materials
such as rock, wood, and plants, to give a feeling of serenity.”
