Mission Statement

Our vision: We envision making Greater Philadelphia a nationally and globally known center of Japanese art, business, and culture.

Description

Operating now as the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia, a private nonprofit organization, the board and staff has administered, operated, funded, and preserved the city-owned site since 1982.

Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is a traditional-style Japanese house and garden in Philadelphia's West Fairmount Park. Shofuso was built in Japan in 1953 using traditional techniques and materials and exhibited in the courtyard at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, then moved to Philadelphia in 1958. A viewing garden with koi pond and island, a tea garden, and a courtyard garden comprise the nationally-ranked garden of this historic site and museum. Shofuso is open to the public for visitation Wednesday through Sunday from April through October.
