Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden (7)
A traditional Japanese garden designed by Takeo Shiota and first opened to the public in 1915. The large red Torii standing in the pond indicates the presence of a shrine nestled in the pines on the hill beyond. The shrine is dedicated to the Shinto god of the harvest, protector of plants. The inscription on the front of the Torii reads, Dai-myo-jin, Great Illuminating Deity, or Spirit of Light.
