The Nishinomiya Garden became reality in the spring of 1974. This small, manicured gem is a top draw at Manito, with its garden waterfall, gurgling stream and koi pond. The Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden was completed in 1974 and symbolizes the Sister City relationship between Spokane and Nishinomiya, Japan. It is also named after the late Ed Tsutakawa, a champion of the Sister City movement here. The initial designer was Nagao Sakurai, who at one time was in charge of the Imperial Palace grounds in Japan.
