Sakura at Japanese garden in Shadyside.


The Japanese Garden at UPMC Shadyside is a quiet oasis next to a busy, oft-jammed Centre Ave. It has several ornamental statutes, rock gardens, and quiet nooks, and is ringed by cherry blossoms. Reads a plaque at the entrance:
This garden is a gift from Dr. Kazuo Kodera in honor of nurses. It is a place for health care providers to think about our friends around the world and to reflect on the meaning of our work, which i to care for one another. It is a place to find new friendships, to find new hope, and to find peace.

We hope you enjoy your time here.
