Portland Japanese Garden

Flat Garden and Pavilion from Beneath the Weeping Cherry. Photo by Joanthan LeyProclaimed to be the most beautiful and authentic Japanese garden in the world outside of Japan, Portland Japanese Garden sits nestled in the hills of Washington Park. Designed in 1963, it encompasses 12 acres with eight separate garden styles, and includes an authentic Japanese Tea House, meandering streams, intimate walkways, and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood. This is a place to discard worldly thoughts and concerns and see oneself as a small but integral part of the universe.

This pass admits up to two adults and eight children. Children 5 and under are free.

Please note that passes to the Portland Japanese Garden are very popular. At midnight on the first of each month, new passes are released for the following three months. For example, on August 1, you can reserve passes through October.

Tip: If you don’t see any dates available, check back periodically in case anyone cancels a reservation.
