Special Gifts From

The People of

Matsue, Japan



Matsue, a Sister-City of New Orleans, has long been an enthusiastic supporter of our plans to construct a Japanese garden in New Orleans.  This beautiful stonework consists of two massive stone lanterns and a wonderful stone water basin.  They are part of an incredibly generous contribution from the people of Matsue. In addition our sign, with its beautiful calligraphy, was also a gift from Matsue.

We believe our garden has become a special expression of friendship between the people of New Orleans and Matsue.
