Human Nature: The Japanese Garden of Portland, Oregon
Nestled in the west hills of Portland, Oregon, the Portland Japanese Garden is a haven of tranquil beauty and a host to visitors from around the world.
most beautiful Japanese garden, not only in the United States, but in the world outside of Japan. Quoted by: Nobuo Matsunaga, Former Japanese Ambassador to the U.S.
The 5.5 acre Japanese Garden is composed of five distinct garden styles. When we enter a Japanese garden, the desired effect is to realize a sense of peace, harmony, and tranquility and to experience the feeling of being a part of nature. In a deep sense, the Japanese garden is a living reflection of the long history and traditional culture of Japan. Influenced by Shinto, Buddhist, and Taoist philosophies, there is always something more in these compositions of stone, water, and plants than meets the eye.
Three of the essential elements used to create a Japanese garden are stone, the bones of the landscape; water, the life-giving force; and plants, the tapestry of the four seasons. Japanese garden designers feel that good stone composition is one of the most important elements in creating a well-designed garden. Secondary elements include pagodas, stone lanterns, water basins, arbors, and bridges. Japanese gardens are asymmetrical in design and reflect nature in idealized form. Traditionally, human scale is maintained throughout so that one always feels part of the environment, not overpowered by it. As Professor Tono wanted to incorporate native trees in our Garden so that it would blend naturally with its environment, some of the plantings here are on a larger scale.
The Flat Garden (hira-niwa) is an example of how gardens in Japan have continued to develop the dry landscape style of the karesansui garden over time
Our Strolling Pond Garden (chisen kaiyu shiki teien) consists of Upper and Lower Ponds connected by an enticing stream.
A Japanese tea garden (cha-niwa or roji) is a place for quiet reflection on the beauty of nature and the art of living in harmony with one another and with all things.
The Natural Garden was created to be an environment that encourages visitors to rest, relax, and reflect on the very essence and brevity of life.
Gardens of raked sand (or gravel) and stone are referred to as karesansui (literally, dry landscape) gardens.

Portland Japanese Garden, Fall Splendor Timelapse
While the City of Portland is vibrant and full of colors, the Portland Japanese Garden takes just a few weeks longer to reach peak color because of its micro-climate.
While the Garden hasn't yet reached these peak colors, we wanted to share a time lapse video from last year as the Garden switched to Fall.
The Portland Japanese Garden is comprised of five unique Japanese garden styles. The Strolling Pond garden is home to “The” Maple Tree, rumored to be one of the most photographed trees in the United States. When you see it in the fall, you understand why!
