The Japanese Garden at Hermann Park

Serenity is the word many people use to describe the Japanese Garden at Hermann Park in Houston, Texas. The gardens features water features, stones and greenery of all types. As you first enter the gate, you pass by the “Welcoming Lantern” or ishi-doro, a gift from Houston’s sister city of Chiba, Japan.  The five piece lantern is constructed from solid granite.
