Five gardens—Flat, Strolling Pond, Natural, Tea, and Sand & Stone—span 5.5 acres, set to expand in late 2015, of this Japanese garden located near the Rose Gardens in Washington Park. Commissioned by the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon, the Portland Japanese Garden was designed by Takuma Tono, professor of landscape architecture at Tokyo Agricultural University. It incorporates the traditional stone, water, and plants in its landscape, plus accents like stone lanterns, bridges, and pagodas. Visitors may explore the five gardens daily throughout the year, except during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.
