Japanese Gardens

The main garden depicts the tribulations of human life, from the Gate of Oblivion and the Cave of Birth to the Hill of Ambition and the Well of Wisdom, via the Bridges of Engagement and Marriage. The exit is through the Gateway to Eternity, which since 1974, opens onto the Garden of Eternity.
