This is the gorgeous and very traditional Japanese garden at the Four Rivers Cultural Center in Ontario.  It is called the Hikaru Mizu Garden, which means shining water in Japanese.  This is an artistic Japanese garden, using elements of the classical gardens of the 10th to 12th centuries with ornamental shrubs and flowering cherry and plum trees.  This garden uses an abundance of stone and hardscape and is a "space of serenity and solitude for everyone in the community to enjoy", to quote the Garden Tour brochure.  Here are some highlights:

They hold weddings and other events here, and I can't think of a more beautiful place to be for something like that.  If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing this lovely traditional garden, you owe it to yourself to go over to the Four Rivers Cultural Center and see it when you get a chance.  It's worth the trip, believe me!
