ORGANIZATION: Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, Arizona

  • 39 people are interested
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

The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix is gearing up our tours program set to restart in the fall of this year. If you are passionate about our Garden, giving back to the community, and teaching others this is a great opportunity for you.

Docents are our most specialized volunteers. Each docent completes training that will prepare them to speak confidently and accurately about the history, plants, and even design of the Garden.

Docents need to have the physical stamina to move around in the Garden for 30-60 minutes at a time and speak loud enough so groups of 15-20 people can hear you. Japanese language proficiency is not necessary.

You should be available to give at least two tours a month during the hours stated above. Of course, more frequently is very desirable.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Japanese Friendship Garden is to maintain a beautiful, serene Japanese garden in the heart of Phoenix and provide educational and artistic programs and events to deepen our relationships and celebrate the rich history and culture of Japan.


The Japanese Friendship Garden - also known as RoHoEn - is an authentic 3 1/2 acre Japanese Stroll Garden with a tea garden and tea house. This tranquil and beautiful setting features 1,500 tons of hand-picked rock, stone footbridges, lanterns and more than 50 varieties of plants. Flowing streams, a 12-foot waterfall and a Koi pond with over 300 colorful Koi fish refresh the senses. The Garden is the product and shared cultural vision of the Sister Cities of Phoenix and Himeji, Japan.
