I went to see the Japanese Sunken Gardens in San Antonio, Texas. It is located very near the zoo and parking is free. The pathways and foot bridges were all made from stacked rocks and stones. The pathways twist and turn and were built on various levels. At the time of my visit many of the flowers were not blooming but the walk through the carved out pathways was definitely worth the time spent walking them. Peaceful and calm. Perfect for quiet meditation. Just as I expected it would be.
