The Japanese Garden is behind the Historical Society on Nottingham Terrace, near Buffalo State College and the Albright Knox. It's right next to Delaware Park and Hoyt Lake, so it might even be an Olmsted design, but I'm not sure. Does anyone else know?
The Japanese garden is not part of the Olmstead plan. It was installed in the park in the 1970's when one of Buffalo's sister cities donated a japanese lantern. The islands and a bridge were constructed. It was then left on its own to deteriorate in Buffalo's bad old days. It still could be a lot better but is very charming. Too bad there is a roaring highway just across the lake.
