This is a hypothetical project for the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park, San Diego.

Balboa Park attracts millions of visitors each year because of its lush landscaping and rich architecture. The Japanese Friendship Garden lies within the expansive park is known for its beautiful scenery.

However, many visitors do not know much about the meaning behind the garden's true name. Engraved on a stone at the entrance to the garden is 三溪園 (San Kei En) meaning three-piece garden.

I made this document to explain the meaning of San Kei En and to point out how it is utilized in the garden. The goal is to inform visitors so that they can enjoy the garden to its full extent by understanding what they are strolling through.
