Nagasaki to hold ceremony for designer of St.Paul garden

| No Comments

Nagasaki will hold a Buddhist ceremony in honor of Masami Matsuda, known locally as the man who designed Como Park's Ordway Memorial Garden. Matsuda died at age 89 early last month, the Star Tribune reported.

Matsuda worked on the designs of many gardens in a number of countries, and he returned to them throughout the following years to improve them and make changes.

The Star Tribune's Pamela Miller reported in his obituary that a letter from Matsuda that was read at a commemorating ceremony twelve years ago reads in part, "May this experience become a bridge, enhancing the exchange between our countries and expand[ing] the ring of peace and friendship in this world."
