I still have never been to the Japanese Gardens. I need to rectify this blatent oversight on my part. I was reminded of this on my hike from Washington Park to Pittock Mansion. I was walking along and I hear a high pitched *bang* *bang* *bang* and look down, and there is the koi pond in the gardens. The feeder hits the butt of a pole against the rocks to let the fish know it's feeding time, and all of a sudden the water is boiling with these huge brightly colored carp.
Yep, I definately need to make the time to go wander the gardens.
