Photo: Small bridge at Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden
The bridge at Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden is similar to curved bridges found in many such gardens throughout the world. You'll see a larger example of a similar style bridge at the Japanese Garden at Huntington Library & Gardens in San Marino approx. 35-40 minutes from Long Beach.
The little bridge in Long Beach's garden on the campus of a state university is ideal for children and parents to walk across, and makers a grand wedding procession. Be sure to walk on the bridge and see its custom finials topping bridge posts. The bridge is simple yet elegant.
Like many Japanese gardens that span the
centuries in Japan, a bridge often represents a
concept such as symbolizing the way to paradise.Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden
