Photography Monday: The Huntington’s Japanese Garden
For our Mother’s Day celebration, our mothers decided they wanted to visit The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. It is a gem tucked away in the pastoral landscape of San Marino, California. A destination site filled with many things to see and do and not enough time to accomplish it all in one day. First stop of the visit was the Japanese Garden. This garden was recently renovated last year to celebrate its centennial.
Begun in 1911, it was inspired by widespread Western fascination with Asian culture. After the institution opened to the public in 1928, the Japanese Garden became a major draw for visitors. It is one of the most iconic landscapes at The Huntington and will continue to be so for many years to come. For more information, please visit this site.
Next week, we will visit the Chinese Garden at The Huntington.
