I have been a Los Angeles resident for more than 15 years, and I admit that there are still areas of this urban sprawl that I have yet to discover. Case in point: The Huntington Library in Pasadena. It’s a shame that it’s taken me more than a decade to see this place.
My friends and I had the opportunity a few weekends ago to explore the area, and the gardens took our breath away, particularly the Japanese Garden. The attention to detail was incredible, so much so that I felt goosebumps as waves of nostalgia washed over me. It truly made me feel as if I teleported back to Japan. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to see the entire place (which was HUGE!), so we’re planning a second visit sometime in the spring.
Thanks for reading!
