Como Ordway Japanese Garden The Como Ordway Memorial Japanese Garden is landscaped in the Sansui mountain-and-water style. The focal point is a pond and waterfall. Glacial rock form the skeleton of the garden. Each rock was carefully placed according to design traditions developed through centuries of practice, and positioned in such a way that suggests having been there since the beginning of time.
