Volunteer as a Docent
Follow your passion for Japanese Culture to the tranquil Japanese Garden where we would be happy to train you to be one of our cherished docents



Be able and willing to answer questions from our visitors. Share some of the meaning and history of the Garden by leading informative tours for Garden guests. Tours are held during public hours on weekdays and weekends. We host private tour groups, school programs, and large groups at special events.

Thorough training is provided.

No Japanese language experience is required, but an interest in Japanese culture is very helpful.

Because we're working with children, we need our docents to pass a background check and be fingerprinted (at our cost.)
