Description on the back of the card:
In the design of Japanese gardens such as this one, a bridge is more than a practical structure. It symbolizes an important transition, a crossing from the known to the unknown. The expansive garden also includes 20 stunning acres of hills, valleys, waterfalls, streams, and reflecting pools which were developed beginning in 1927 by Fujitaro Kubota, who emigrated from Japan in 1907. Now a public garden owned by the City of Seattle, this lovely acreage has been called an urban refuge. It was designated an Historic Landmark in 1981.
