About a quarter-mile from Franklin Community High School, a small slice of Japanese culture is being cultivated.

A flagstone pathway leads through a wooden torii gate, traditionally used in Japan to mark the entrance into a holy shrine.

Weeping cherry trees, cool-bark maples and bamboo dot the property. Lanterns and flags decorate the curved plant beds. A mock pond, created using polished blue glass instead of water, adds to the serene scene.
