 Brooklyn Botanic Garden: Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden
It was constructed in 1914 and 1915—at a cost of $13,000, a gift of early BBG benefactor and trustee Alfred T. White—and it first opened to the public in June 1915.
It is considered to be the masterpiece of its creator, Japanese landscape designer Takeo Shiota (1881-1943).
Shiota was born in a small village about 40 miles from Tokyo, and in his youth spent years traversing Japan on foot to explore the natural landscape.

A year later, the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden was completed by eminent landscape architect Takeo Shiota.

The Japanese Garden also complements a collection of Japanese Flowering Cherry trees with over forty varieties which in its diversity is the largest in the western world.
