Description

Description
The inscription on the memorials read:  "The Japanese Garden on Mirror Lake was originally conceived in 1970 with construction being completed in 1972.  The purpose was to create a place of beauty and tranquility as well as commemorate the Sister City relationship between Buffalo and Kanazawa, Japan.  In 1996, the garden was renovated and rededicated.  This was made possible by a grant from the commemorative Association for the Japan World Exposition (1970) Fund, the generous support of the people of Kanajawa and Buffalo, and funds provided by the City of Buffalo."  The second stone is engraved with the names of 20 Japanese Garden donors.
