Keeping with the high art of form of Japanese Gardens, the Hagiwara Japanese Tea Garden has its roots in Buddhism and Daoism, offering a retreat from the hectic day-to-day life in a large city.  Colorful pagodas, tranquil ponds, distinctive bridges, a waterfall, winding narrow stone paths, lanterns, adorned gates, cherry blossoms… such a peaceful place that the click of my camera shutter seemed loud at times!
