A small train loops through the very large ABQ BioPark. One of its stops is outside the Japanese garden.

Sasebo is a four-acre Japanese garden built to honor one of Albuquerque’s Sister Cities.

Sasebo opened in September 2007. It was designed by Toru Tanaka, founder of the Portland Landscape Design and Japanese Garden Specialty.

Two types of fence, one provides shade for a utility building and the other marks the boundary between the garden interior and the welcoming plaza and bell tower.
