Minor gave a great tour of the gardens and the workshop. It was amazing to see how the pieces are crafted and learn all about the types of wood they use and the lengths they go to, to be environmentally friendly. Definitely worth a visit!

Must see while in San Jose. Minor, the shopkeeper, gave me an amazing tour of the garden and the workshop. There are lots of different price points available in the shop, ranging from 10-2000. Most small bowls are in the 200-500 range.
