There are many lovely gardens in Oregon. A lot of care has been put into them. One of those is the Portland Japanese Garden. Sitting up in the hills it has many layers of Japanese inspiration. The lay-out is of five different types of gardens. One of which is a Tea Garden complete with a Japanese Tea House.
There are two gates where one can go through to see the Tea House. Shall we go through one?
Did I mention I like to use tilt-shift photography sometimes? It makes things a bit more interesting.
Inside is the Tea House surrounded by the garden.
Inside one can sometimes see a tea ceremony being held.
Hints of more garden just beyond.
