Japanese Garden
The Nishinomiya Japanese Garden at Manito Park symbolizes a friendship between Spokane, Washington and Nishinomiya, Japan. The original architect was Nagao Akurai who once directed the grounds at the Imperial Palace. Mr. Akurai was recruited in 1967 to design the Japanese Garden. In 1973, however, Mr. Akurai had a stroke and two landscape architects picked up where Mr. Akurai left off. Shosuke Nagai and Hirokiko Kawai, from Kobe, Japan, completed the Japanese Garden in 1974. Recently, this Garden was ranked 16th out of over 300  Japanese Gardens in North America.
