The Manago Hotel is a traditional Japanese hotel constructed in Kona, Hawaii during the 1940s. A true antique feel emanates from the wooden floors and a historical photos posted throughout the narrow halls. Hidden in a courtyard between the north and south wings of the building is a small garden packed with plants, walkways, and Japanese ornaments. Among a pond of creeping juniper and river pebbles is a stone lantern delicately carved with symbols and shapes. Much of Japanese landscape design deals with the creation of illusions – conveying an idea much larger than space would allow.
