The Robertson Tunnel, at the Washington Park Station.
We got off the bus at the Japanese Garden stop, and walked up a trail toward the entrance gate.
We already saw a lot of pretty "bonsai-style" trees before we got to the gate. "Ahh... it's getting Japanese-y," I said.
At the entrance gate. The sun behind it made it look like a gate to a sacred place (which theoretically was, I think.)
There were so many beautiful trees, flowers, and plants at the Japanese Garden! I took a bunch of pictures, and here are just a few of them:
Some "bonsai-style" trees.
A beautiful little waterfall.
Another pretty little waterfall.
Pretty pretty pretty.
I love the little decorated gates at different areas of the garden.
The Zen garden. John and I sat on the bench and watched this for a while.
Special rooftiles. I believe it was the Japanese Garden symbol in the center.
You could also overlook the city of Portland.
More beautiful flowers and plants outside the exit gate.
Ahh... it was so beautiful. Here are more photos I took at the Japanese Garden.
After visiting the Japanese Garden we got on the bus back to Washington Park.
