Intersections - Reflections of Japan

Here at the veranda our interest in the created worlds of Disney whets our appetite to explore the wider world which inspired them (and vice-versa). Photos are a fun way to discover the intersections, between Disney and the world beyond.

Consider for example these two structures.  Although both are inspired on Japanese architecture they reside on opposite sides of the U.S. continent.

You may recognize this pagoda from Epcot's Japan Pavilion:

But have you ever been to the Japanese Tea Garden at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park?

Filmore, Ft Mason, Golden Gate Park, North Beach  61
A lovely spot for reflection and tea
