The Japanese Garden, located in the West Hills of Portland, is acutally divided into five seperate gardens: Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden, Flat Garden, and the Sand and Stone Garden. The gardens are just beautiful and provide a peaceful, tranquil envirionment. They have many events taking place each month, such as writing workshops, tea, and other exhibits. You can sign up for an informative tour if you would like. They have daily tours April through October. Don't forget to stop off at the gift shop on your way out. You won't be disappointed! They have a nice selection of gifts including; tea pots, books, candles, chop sticks, toys, garden items, and much more. Highly recommended!
