Edward annoying one of his Koi at his home.
I have studied Japanese landscaping and architecture for decades as a hobby. I retired this year after 35 years as an engineer at a nuclear facility. I volunteer to build things at the Friendship Garden because few people would get a chance to enjoy what I build if it was in my yard. I have also built three Taiko Drums which I enjoy playing solo. My wife Cheryl plays in a local taiko group. When we find time we plan to do mini cultural exhibits at the pavilion.
We are taking a trip to Tokai-Mura Japan in November with the Idaho Falls Sister City delegation.
