      Thumbs up

      Fantastic pictures! I hope you don't mind I saved a few for insperation.


      I got into koi from visiting Japanese gardens, building one myself. Or should I say a japanese inspired garden because a japanese garden can only be in japan.

      I posted a few of mine on this thread, lots more to post when I get time to resize them.

      Thanks for bumping this up!

      I had not seen this thread, either. (Late joiner - you know).

      These men I would NOT mess with.
      The other portrayed seemed to have character flaws that could be exploited in a fight. But appearances could be deceiving.

      I like the gardens of Japan. I've never been there, but have several books of smaller spaces - photo books - where you are supposed to learn by observation, not too much text.
      These are wonderful places.
      I like the perfection of the smaller places. Having several gardens, I am well aware of how hard you work to make things look "natural" as well as perfect. These are great photos.

      Morikami Japanese Gardens

      Greetings Folks,
      When I cannot get to Japan, there is a place I go to that makes me feel right at home and it is only a hour drive for me. Any one who gets a chance to visit Florida should not miss this place. Maybe save a day after Sensi Blammo wet lab to spend some time there. Some day, sure would like to see a koi show there.

      The Morikami
      Museum and Japanese Gardens
      4000 Morikami Park Road
      Delray Beach, FL 33446
      http://www.morikami.org/index.htm

      History
      Visitors to Florida are surprised to discover a century-old connection between Japan and South Florida. In 1905, Jo Sakai, newly graduated from the New York University School of Commerce, returned to his hometown in Japan and organized a pioneering party to accompany him to Boca Raton, Florida. Sakai and his companions implemented a bold economic and social experiment, the Yamato Colony. Facing harsh farming conditions, the families struggled to endure through the 1920s until, finally, one by one they left for more hospitable parts of the US or returned to Japan.
      But one colonist remained. George Sukeji Morikami, who continued to work as a farmer and agricultural agent in South Florida, eventually prospering and amassing several hundred acres of land. In the mid-1970s, nearing the end of his long life, George Morikami donated 200 acres to Palm Beach County and the State of Florida.
      The Morikami Museum celebrates the living culture of Japan and the unique history of a Japanese farming colony in Florida. Morikami Park offers 200 acres of tranquil pine forest, nature trails, lakes and waterfalls, shaded picnic pavilions, Japanese Gardens and bonsai collections. Classes and workshops for kids and adults include Japanese language, tea ceremony, flower arranging, orchid culture, ink painting, haiku, origami, bonsai, nature photography, toy and kite-making and more. The museum store features authentic gift items from Japan, including jewelry, books, cards, dolls, toys, clothing, pattery, lacquerware, kitchenware, tea utensils and much more. The cafe features a delightful menu of homestyle Japanese food, beverages and snacks.
