Manipulating water

Kenrokuen Garden is ranked as one of the three top Japanese gardens and hinted to be number one. What is it with the Japanese ranking things into threes? Kenrokuen is said to contain all six attributes of a "perfect" garden: seclusion, spaciousness, artificiality, antiquity, abundant water and broad views. Each turn in a path affords the stroller a different view and it isn't hard to imagine that the place has little changed since its opening a century ago. The garden contains Japan's earliest known man-made fountain as well as various small ponds and paths. Rhod and I kept the throngs of tourists waiting as we worked our magic on the water. Rhod's impression of a whale was quite as stunning as the garden itself.
