Portland Japanese Garden Reviews
The most authentic Japanese Garden outside Japan May 14, 2011
For all fans of Japanese culture and gardens this place is a must-see. If you have enough time you can hike to the gardens starting at Oregon Zoo (it's about 2 miles from there), if not just take the city bus.
The garden itself is located on a hill above the city and provides you with a spectacular view on Portland and Mount Hood. It is a complete garden having all major elements: stone, water and plants. You should definitely take a public tour which start several times a day and you will get provided with tons of interesting information, not only concerning the garden, but also the culture.
Make sure you have at least 45 minutes for the tour or visiting by yourself. The garden is huge and contains also several Japanese-style houses. In every time of the year the garden changes its beautiful colors, so you can go even in fall or winter and it will be still gorgeous.
