Nitobe Memorial Garden

There was one cherry tree blooming in the garden, but we were too early for most of them

Last week Deborah and I went out looking for cherry blossoms, and one of the stops we made was at the Nitobe Memorial Garden, a traditional Japanese stroll garden at the University of British Columbia. I have been to UBC a couple of times for research studies, but I had no idea the garden was there. According to the information on the flyer, the garden "is considered to be one of the best traditional Japanese gardens in North America and among the top five outside Japan." Unfortunately we were a bit early for the cherry blossoms at this particular spot, but it was an interesting visit nonetheless and well worth checking out. You can see more pictures on my Flickr page.
