Portland Japanese Garden - Review
The Portland Japanese Garden is actually made up of five different gardens namely; Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden and Sand and Stone Garden. Each of these gardens exhibit peace and tranquility while depicting the Japanese tradition and culture. The designers of the garden believe that the quality of stones used in the garden are the prime most element to create a well-designed garden. Hence everything that contributed in the making of this five in one garden was picked wisely. Each of these five gardens has something peculiar about them.

Portland Japanese Garden, Portland Reviews
Incredibly well designed, managed and maintained Japanese garden. I have visited hundreds of gardens in Japan and the Portland Japanese Gardens rank up there with the best. Admission is a bit pricey, but worth it (and the money is obviously well spent). The garden is arranged to highlight the changing seasons and is a great experience no matter what the time of year or weather. (It is gorgeous in the rain!). Allow a couple of hours to soak in the many aspects of this unique experience. Note; No food or pets allowed. Well worth a trip. Highly recommended.
I went here with my fiance as well as my best friend and her fiance. It was beautiful and serene. We spent about three hours there and could have easily spent longer there. The gift shop was full of lovely items which I had to get a few of. There is a tea house which I heard good things about but did not have time to step in to. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here.
What an AMAZING Experience this was! The Garden itself is pretty small but has a lot of Greatness packed into that area. We are Colorado Based photographers, so we Constantly see things about this location. We made this special trip out to the Garden, nearly missing our flight just to see the famous Maple Leaf Tree, VERY popular photographed Trip (best to photograph in late October). Parking is some what easy but i understand there is off site parking that has shuttles that come/go every 15 minutes, I highly recommend reading there visiting section on the site. We will for sure be back to visit in October next time for a visit. Very pleased with this stop, pricing, and customer services while walking around and asking questions!
My wife and I recently flew in from Oklahoma for a 5-day getaway/tour around the state of Oregon. We were amazed and will undoubtedly return. The waterfalls, hiking, forests, coastal areas, etc. left us incredibly impressed. Prior to our departing flight, we decided to stop at the Portland Japanese Garden. While we don't have any complaints about the garden, we were not at all impressed either. We spent the entire week travelling to some of the most beautiful sites, none of which involved any admission fees. This garden was the least impressive activity we did, and also the most expensive. I suppose if you live in the Portland-area, this is worth checking out once. However, if you are a tourist, there is a plethora of cost-free nature to explore that significantly trumps this garden.
What lovely place. Price was a bit much and I don't plan on coming here frequently due to financial constraint but I think for a once time deal it was well worth it. If I could afford to come back more often I would. So many exhibits and if you take your time it to soak it all in it's pretty spectacular. When we went on a weekend it was super crowded and finding parking was insane so I recommend parking far and walking in if you can. If you're able to find some segments without people take a moment to soak it in, it quickly becomes meditative.
