Portland Japanese Garden, Portland, Oregon, USA
A Garden Reimagined. After decades of dreaming and years of doing, the Portland Japanese Garden is unveiling our finished Cultural Crossing expansion project. Explore new Gardens, galleries, and so more.
The centerpiece of the expansion is a Cultural Village designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma. Kuma is one of the most significant contemporary Japanese architects working today. He believes the study of place is essential to integrating a project with its surroundings. The Cultural Village provides a place where visitors can immerse themselves in traditional Japanese arts through seasonal activities, performances, and demonstrations in the Tateuchi Courtyard.
The Portland Japanese Garden is a traditional Japanese garden occupying 5.5 acres (22,000 m²), located within Washington Park in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, United States. It is operated by the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon, a private non-profit corporation, which leased the site from the city in the early 1960s and whose members elect the trustees of the Society. Stephen D. Bloom has been the chief executive officer of the Japanese Garden Society since 2005.
