I strongly recommend Mr. Arii to anyone who is planning to design and landscape a garden. He is a true artist who is precise and painstaking in creating a glorious setting.

In forty years in business, I have dedicated many letters of recommendation, but never one of for a person like Takendo Arii, who has made the most important and the most lasting contribution to the "Golden Door." Arii's great masterpieces of art are not inexpensive, but they last and grow in beauty and value. I'm sure you will find your investment worthwhile.

Mr. Arii not only is a talented landscape designer, but was also one of the most dedicated employees Sea World has had. I believe Mr. Arii would make and excellent employee for anyone needing his special talents in the landscaping design area.
