Japanese Gardens, Dubbo, N.S.W., Part Three

According to the brochure "the people of Dubbo are very fortunate indeed to have this wonderful garden, which was gifted to us by our Sister City friends in Minokamo, Japan.  Work began on the garden on 25 February 2002 with the planting of the first Cherry Blossom trees.  Three twelve metre shipping containers arrived from Japan filled with building materials to construct the authentic Jurian Tea House".

I'm very taken with the curved girder arches over that sinuous path. Nice tour.
