Japanese Rock Garden by johannachambers Japanese Rock Garden by johannachambers
Rock garden in the Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park, San Diego. I got to feed the koi fish there too, which are huge and so cute! Their round lil' mouths felt so strange and rubbery when they nibbled at my hand. We also watched a woman play a koto instrument and she was amazing.

my mom used to have a little koi pond on her back porch and they gently nibbled her fingers sometimes

She was so good at it too! I had no idea how complex a koto could be.

The koto is the zither-like instrument, right? It looks kinda hard...but then, anything you don't have any mastery of seems the same. I suppose it's true for the koto.

I'm not sure what a zither looks like, but it was quite a long instrument, horizontal with the player towards one end of it. She both plucked and strummed the strings, and the strings had supports underneath them that she moved side to side when she tuned it. It was very pretty, and she was an awesome musician!

Yeah...I think that's like a zither. That definitely fits the descrip. of a koto as I've seen.

Wow...you're so lucky to have heard one!!!
