Portland Japanese Garden

Nestled in the West Hills of Washington Park, the Portland Japanese Garden is a refuge of tranquility once proclaimed the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan. The Garden is composed of eight garden spaces, each demonstrating unique aspects of Japanese garden history and design. It encompasses 12 acres and includes an authentic Japanese Tea House, meandering streams, intimate walkways, and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood. A Cultural Village, designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma, integrates seamlessly with the surrounding Garden. Home to classrooms, gallery spaces, and the Umami Café, the Village provides ample room for exploration and education.

The membership admits 4 adults and all children age 18 or younger, from the same household, into the Garden free of charge. See Borrowing Rules for more information about how the pass may be used.
