Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, Arizona

  • 76 people are interested

Are you outgoing? Love to talk to people? Want to share your love of the Japanese Friendship Garden? This volunteer job is for you! It is not a good fit for shy people. The Garden welcomes volunteers who are 18+ years old.


Ambassador Volunteers enhance the visitor experience by interacting with each guest. They present a positive public image while walking the Garden path. They monitor guest behavior and offer polite corrections. Ambassador Volunteers complete a 2-hour training course and sign up for a recurring slot, (the same day/time each week.)

Shaded areas are always available in the Garden.

This would be a good entry-level volunteer experience for someone who is thinking about being a Docent (tour guide) Volunteer in the future.

The Garden will be closed completely in August/September. Our next Ambassador training will be in September (getting everyone ready for our season opening on Oct. 1.) Please get in touch with us now so we can save you a spot on our training list.

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.
