Iida placed the rocks he selected, ranging in weight from 1,000 pounds to more than 11 tons, in their designated locations.

He arranged thousands of plants selected to represent diverse scenes found in Japan. They included azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias, other evergreens, flowering fruit trees, mosses, and ferns.

I took this photo from where the Kobe lantern is. On the left bottom side of the photo, you can see the geometric lantern. To the far left of that is where the wisteria trellis is located.
