Feed the fish

Feed the fish

Last Saturday I took 9 of my high school art students to our local Morikami Japanese Museum and Gardens. We learned how to make a heart, bowtie, and shirt out of money! After origami class, and in between the rain drops, we toured and photographed the gardens and fed the huge koi fish (they look like super-sized goldfish). We all look forward to visiting again in December to enjoy a tea ceremony.

I love the pond at the Morikami. Feeding the fish in such a beautiful garden is such a tranquil experience.
I'm sure you will be gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for Japanise culture on your journey. I'd love for you to be my tour guide to the Morikami when you return.
