Thanks for reading my Japanese garden blog.
Following a couple of recent metions for the superb Japanese gardens in Portland,Oregon USA I have taken it upon myself to provide some brief details following a couple of e mail requests.
This garden was designed by Professor Takuma Tono in 1963, it is just over 5.5 acres in size and consists of the following sections:
Strolling pond garden
Sand and stone garden
A Flat garden
The garden is located in Washington Park in Portland’s west hills.
The gardens feature authentic materials, structures and buildings together with a blend of natural scenery that is indigenous to both the US and Japan.
In the words of Professor Takuma “the garden speaks to all the sense, not just the mind alone”.
Have a great day.
