There are many beautiful gardens in Japan, but this one and Ritsurin Garden in Takamatsu are probably two of the nicer ones.
Kenrokuen has greenery, flowers, water features, plum trees (green plums make a very nice drink) and a fountain that is powered by natural water pressure created by different water levels in two ponds. Japan has no shortage of water and hopefully they can keep it clean as it flows to the ocean.
