The greater Seattle area is fortunate to have several beautiful Japanese gardens including the Bloedel Reserve, Kubota Garden, and the Yao Garden at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. One of the best gardens in Seattle is the Japanese Garden in the Washington Park Arboretum.
Designed by the renowned designer Juki Iida and completed in 1960, this 3.5 acre sanctuary is a gorgeous destination. It features lovely plants sited with stone lanterns, bridges, waterfalls, pleasant walkways, a pond, and an authentic Japanese tea house.
The garden offers a scenic campus that is made for relaxation, meditation, strolling, and photography.
The garden is part of the Washington Park Arboretum and it is managed by the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department.
There is a $6 admission fee. The gardens are open from March 1 through November 30.
