If you haven’t been to Fredrick Meijer Gardens you are missing out. Last night I went to explore the new Japanese Gardens and to take advantage of the free tuesday night concerts they offer in the amphitheater. It was the perfect mix of relaxation, grooving and inspiration. We went to hear Billy Strings and Don Julin, but the headlining band, The Go Arounds, were great too.
The Japanese Garden designed by Hoichi Kurisu and the firm Kurisu International. All the beautiful details and little hidden corners of the garden are amazing, but I especially love how it feels so natural even though it was all carefully curated. It was really inspiring to see a different ascetic and unique materials to create a unique look and feel to what I am used to seeing.
I love exploring the city I live in. There is so much going on, you just have to get out and see it.
