"Our Japanese Sister" Gardens

July 23-November 13

The city of Fort Wayne has a “twin,” a sister city in Japan called Takaoka. We honor our friendly relations with our Japanese Sister in this lovely garden with a distinctly Japanese flavor. Pass through the entry gate to discover a green and peaceful space. In the outer garden, spots of summer annuals will give way to autumn chrysanthemums as the season progresses. Move slowly along the garden paths to calm your mind as you approach the Tea House and its simple and intimate surrounding garden. Peering into the house, you will see the utensils used for the tea ceremony as well as a scroll and flowers presented for quiet study. Gain insight into Takaoka’s culture through a display of items presented by their city to ours, on loan from The History Center.
