Last year, our Japan Fall Festival (Aki Matsuri) celebrated Isamu Tanuguch Japanese Garden 50 years at Zilker Botanical Garden!
 
"Opened to the public in 1969, the Garden was built by Isamu Taniguchi when he was seventy years old. Working without a salary or a contract, Mr. Taniguchi spent 18 months transforming 3 acres of rugged caliche hillside into a peaceful garden. As is often done in Japan, the ponds were designed in the shape of a word or ideogram. In this case, the ponds in the first half of the garden spell out the word "AUSTIN", reflecting the fact that these gardens were constructed as a gift to the city. The remains of the Mother Tree, which inspired Mr. Taniguchi to complete his building of the garden, overlooks the pond." (https://www.zilkergarden.org/gardens/japanese.html)
