  • [14] Waterfalls [14] Waterfalls Along with the Taikobashi Bridge, the large waterfall is one of the major attractions of the Japanese Garden. The 6-meter waterfall, along with one other smaller one, was constructed in 1974 when the Garden Tower was built and the grounds underwent a subsequent remodeling. The water cascading down the drop-off consisting of 82 massive boulders creates an impressive yet healing atmosphere that allures strollers and invites them to sit down for a moment of repose.
