Haiku No Niwa

Haiku No Niwa

Haiku No Niwa, the elegant and beautiful Japanese Haiku Garden on the west side of the Bainbridge Public Library, was created by the Bainbridge Island Japanese-American Community as a tribute to their ancestors, many of whom, though citizens, were removed from the island and interned in camps during World War II.

Many people worked on this project. Among them were: Wayne Nakata, who was active in the fund-raising and planning; Junkoh Harui, who suggested the garden and agreed to coordinate the effort; and Viki McCabe and Doug Tanaka, who designed the project.
