For more than 50 years, Portland Japanese Garden has been a haven of serenity and tranquility, nestled in Washington Park . Eight unique garden spaces, from the lush greens in the Strolling Pond Garden to the empty space (or ma) of the Sand and Stone Garden. Each style demonstrates unique aspects of Japanese garden history and design.
The garden includes bridges, a pavilion, and an authentic teahouse, and offers ever-changing cultural demonstrations. The Cultural Village, designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma, provides a place where visitors can immerse themselves in traditional Japanese arts through seasonal activities, performances, and demonstrations in the Atsuhiko and Ina Goodwin Tateuchi Foundation Courtyard.
A series of Art in the Garden exhibitions explore ideas and aesthetics integral to the fabric of life in Japan. The Pavilion gallery, located in the Flat Garden, features 3-4 exhibitions per year. This space is complemented by the Tanabe gallery, which features a changing series of exhibitions throughout the year.
