CountryClub Backyard

The grounds of Tensho Country Club are a testament to man's mastery over nature, and every inch of land is shaped, sculpted, or bent to please the eye. Plants have been cultivated and trimmed into aesthetic and sometimes abstract forms, while ponds and fountains are dotted across the landscape. Flower beds, pavilions, and other installations are linked by gravel pathways, and as much as the grounds represent an escape from the hectic life of the city, they are just as artificial; one need not step on a single blade of grass while visiting. A patio connects the grounds to the club's main building, and tends to be popular with those claiming that fresh air has healing properties, but have little interest in moving too far from the comfort of their chairs.
