About these ratings

When the hustle and bustle of the city starts to get the best of you, seek out some Zen-like tranquility at the Japanese Garden in Washington Park. Many describe the space as one of the most authentic examples of a Japanese garden and, according to one TripAdvisor user, "This is a very nice place to spend a couple of hours enjoying the beauty of the gardens and the serenity and calm of the place." There are five separate gardens that represent different styles of traditional Japanese gardening techniques, all of which are explained more thoroughly on the guided tours. The on-site Tea House was originally constructed in Japan and then rebuilt here. Another reason to visit the Japanese Garden is to enjoy the view of the city and Mount Hood in the distance.

The Japanese Garden is located in the northern section of Washington Park, west of downtown Portland. The garden is open seven days a week, but hours vary depending on the season. Admission is about $10 for adults and $7 for children. (If you don't want to pay to see a garden, the International Rose Test Garden next door offers a free alternative). For more information, check out the Japanese Garden website.
