To find the garden on campus, I suggest finding a campus map and parking in lot 6 which is near the Japanese Cultural Center, building 6600. Ignore the student and faculty only sign in lot 6 and use the machine to pay to get a permit during the week. It is wonderful to discover so many different types of bamboos with plenty of places to sit and picnic and enjoy the experience.
