In one of my earliest blogs, I mentioned how quilters look to their gardens for inspiration. Well, the wonderful, ancient gardens of
inspirational to me. While in Yokohama, I was
able to visit . It is interesting
that the garden was created by Sankei Hara who built his fortune through the
silk trade. The garden is now over a hundred years old and contains many
ancient structures that have been moved there over time. One of the oldest is
the three-story Pagoda which was moved there from Sankeien
Garden Kyoto. It dates back to 1457.
