About

For more than 50 years, the Portland Japanese Garden has been a haven of serenity and tranquility, nestled in scenic Washington Park in Portland, OR. It is considered the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan and one of the foremost Japanese cultural organizations in North America.

 The Portland Japanese Garden hosts traditional Japanese festivals, artist demonstrations, art exhibitions, and classes throughout the year. At the heart of the Garden’s programming is its celebrated Art in the Garden series. Each year, this series presents the work of Japanese artists – or those inspired by Japanese design or traditions – to explore the ideas and aesthetics integral to the fabric of life in Japan.

 Under the leadership of Diane Durston, Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, and Education, the Portland Japanese Garden has endeavored to be not only a place of beauty and tranquility but also of learning. For many visitors, the Portland Japanese Garden is the closest they will ever come to experiencing the land and culture of Japan. The Garden is a living “classroom” that offers tremendous opportunities for experiential learning to all who enter its gates.
