I absolutely love volunteering as an interpreter in the Ordway Gardens in Como Park in St. Paul!
I learn a great deal about the Japanese Garden while there. This lantern located in the tea garden is assembled from the parts of five other lanterns by Masami Matsuda in 1991, Nagasaki's ninth generation landscape gardener. From the beginning of the garden's design, members of the St Paul's sister city, Nagasaki, worked with Como to bring examples of Japanese culture to the garden and the people of Minnesota.
