A Slice of Heaven – Japanese Garden, Portland, Oregon

In September 2010, I visited Portland, Oregon as part of the JetBlue All-You-Can-Jet pass. I devoted a couple of hours to visiting the gorgeous Portland Japanese Garden. Outside of Japan, this is the most authentic Japanese garden (they say).

Here are some pictures from my visit.
