St Fredericksburg, TX 78624
The Japanese Garden of Peace was designed by Taketora Saita of Tokyo and constructed during 1976 at Nimitz's boyhood home. The Nimitz home is part of the museum complex which includes the National Museum of the Pacific War. The traditional garden is a gift from the people of Japan to the people of America, part of the reconciliation between the United States and Japan and to honor the friendship between Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz and Admiral Heihachiro Togo.
After construction funds were raised in Japan, Japanese craftsmen traveled to Texas to build the garden. The finished, $400,000 renovation was opened and dedicated on the 130th founding of Fredericksburg, May 8, 1976. The Admiral Nimitz Foundation is a member of the North American Japanese Garden Association and employs a full-time, properly trained gardener who maintains the facility.
