Belltower: Dueling gardens

By From page A4 | October 21, 2013

When I visited the Japanese Garden in Portland, Ore., I knew it was ranked No. 2 in the country by the Journal of Japanese gardening. Its location, Washington Park, had a lot going for it, especially its natural setting and the view from the pavilion toward the flat garden that combined raked sand and moss. I especially liked the path to the Zen garden, though I thought the Zen garden was too big and the rocks too small and lacking in asymmetrical balance.
