The Koi in the ponds must weigh 8 pounds each and come in every color and speckle you can imagine. Every rock was selected for shape and/or color since the ancients believed them to be guardians of all humans. There are rocks that look like frozen dragons or protective lions.
The detail in the three tiered pagoda is very intricate with designs of plums, pine, and bamboo. These were chosen for good luck as well as balance of nature. Every door opening frames a beautiful picture of plant arrangements while the interior of the pagoda encircles you in it's intricately carved warmth.
I had fun watching some girls dress up as Geisha and their friend as an Imperial Warrior (extra fee). There are many lovely spots to take photographs if you want to dress up.
There's also a tea house serving light refreshments and drink. The gift shop had many lovely items for you to browse through too.
