Book Description from Back Cover

Whether you are a local resident or a traveler on vacation or business in Northern California, without this new visitor's guide, you may never know or never find these amazing and refreshing Japanese gardens.

Each chapter on one of these eight, uniquely different and beautiful gardens open to the public includes...
A basic fact sheet with address, telephone number, days and times open, admission costs, wheelchair access.
A garden map highlighting each garden feature.
Specific private and public transportation directions.
A history of the garden, including designer, as well as key persons and organizations.
A guided stroll through the garden with photographs from key viewing locations.

In addition...
When visiting these public Japanese gardens, you may be surprised to learn about and want to visit twenty-two near-by Points of Interest related to your appreciation of "things Japanese:" Japanese tea rooms, Japantowns, large temple bells, stone monuments, memorials, sister city lanterns, temple gardens and much more.

In addition...
With the aid of old photographs, you will visit and learn the fascinating histories of ten Past or Deceased Points of Interest and, with reconstructed garden maps, stroll three international exposition Japanese gardens which, though long forgotten, were very popular and influential gardens as far back as 1894.
