Portland Japanese Garden

So this was a place on my list to visit. I have rambled by this place for years but I have never gone inside. So with Becky and Lori we paid this place a quick visit. We were squeezing garden in between our visit to Fort Vancouver in the morning and getting down to the Mazama Rambles in the evening. So we had just enough time to go on a guide tour of the place and come to understand why it is here.
