Whats cool about this Japanese Garden is that is located appropriately enough for students at Cal State Long Beach. Actually, it is addressed the same as Long Beach State. The garden isn't a huge garden, but it's got many plants, trees, and shrubs that give the garden its healthy green natural wonderful look. In the middle of the garden is a huge pond with a bridge you can walk over. Whats best is the koi in the pond, with hundreds of them at different sizes and different rainbow colors. Whats cool is that you can feed the fish with the food provided at the garden. You pay a quarter for the food bits, then you can walk up the pond and put your hand in the water. All the koi will literally swim at you the instant you hand touches the water. Don't worry, they don't bite, they don't have teeth! The garden also has a nice ground path so you can walk around and tour the garden in circles. I love going here to relax or just to have fun feeding the fish.
