Nitobe, a place to be

I love Japanese and Chinese gardens. Maybe it is that they follow so strict rules, or maybe it is the combination of strict and whimsical. In Vancouver I visited the Nitobe Memorial Garden, which is designed by a famous Japanese landscape architect. It is not big, and it is located on the University of British Columbia campus. But, as we say in Swedish: 'liten, men naggande god" ("small, but superb"), that is exactly how it is. Here are some photos for your enjoyment.
