Kubota Garden



The waterfall is part of the Mountainside section. It was built by the Kubota family to celebrate the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle, and offers the visitor a miniature walk into the mountains. The waterfalls are formed by stone from North Bend and fed by water pumped up from the lowest pond.

According to the website, "Fujitaro placed over 400 tons of stone to create the Mountainside with featured waterfalls, reflection pools, carved stones and the plants that he had worked with throughout his life."

It's amazing to see in person, especially when you realize that he was already in his 80s at the time. Looking down from the top is a breathtaking view. You can see the vastness of the garden and its greenery. The waterfall has multiple levels and is beautiful to behold.
