A gift from the people of Japan to the people of the United States (May 1976), the Japanese Garden of Peace symbolizes the complicated but firm friendship between the two countries. The garden is a tribute to Japanese Admiral Heihachiro Togo, whose leadership and strategic acumen often inspired and influenced Admiral Nimitz. The garden includes a replica of Togo’s study in Japan and also features the elements of a traditional Japanese garden including a fish pond, raked stones, and large rocks. The garden is located at 311 E. Austin.
