Mission Statement

The Mission of the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon is to create, maintain, improve, and administer a authentic, world-class Japanese garden in the city of Portland and to offer compatible educational, cultural, artistic, horticultural, environmental, and charitable activities.

Description

The Portland Japanese Garden is renowned the most authentic and finest Japanese garden outside of Japan. Founded in 1963 and nestled in Washington Park above downtown Portland, Oregon, the Garden is one of the most important Japanese cultural institutions in North America. 350,000 visitors annually visit the national treasure and participate in its art, cultural, and educational programs. The Garden strives to provide every visitor with an inspiring experience of the beauty and tranquilty of the Japanese garden art form. At the same time, the Garden is the beginning point of engaging diverse audiences to expand their understanding of Japan and themselves. Formal and informal education and cultural programs are offered so that visitors of any background or age will find something that is personally meaningful to them. First of a kind art exhibitions focused on Japanese arts, artists, and craftsmanship illumniate cross-cultural dialogue and understanding of the Japanese art form.
