The Satsuki Gardens is located in Grove, Oklahoma within the heart of the Grand Lake area. This attraction offers visitors a one-half acre of garden containing three elements essential to Japanese landscaping. Japanese landscaping offers the view of a variety of plants, a source of water, and stones to bring an exquisite experience to the viewer.
The Japanese Pavilion at Lendonwood Gardens is a popular stop on any tour of the Gardens. With a design based on the Hosokawa Pavilion in Japan, the Pavilion provides a scenic overlook of the Koi Pond and surrounding garden.
The Pavilion's floors are made of cypress wood, which is resistant to rain damage. The 3x6-foot sections form a herringbone pattern called 'tatami,' another word for a straw mat on which to sit or sleep. In Japanese homes, two of these spaces would designate a futon-sized sleeping area for two people, or in the daytime, a space used for two people to sit and talk.
The building features post-and-beam construction with red cedar posts set in concrete and fitted into grooves cut into the beams. The structure is strengthened by decorative, yet functional, mortise-and-tenon redwood panels. The furniture was hand-made from rough-hewn western red cedar that was planed and sanded.
The Japanese Pavilion is a popular venue for receptions, tea parties, or simply a serene break during a tour of the Gardens. Children especially enjoy feeding the koi fish populating the pond near the Pavilion. A botanical highlight of the area is the large Himalayan Cedar near the Pavilion.
