Japanese Garden - Review

This exquisite 3.5 acre garden, landscaped in Japanese style by master designer Juki Iida, is one of the oldest and most authentic of its kind in the USA. It's full of the usual feature - boulders, streams, ponds with turtles and lilies, cute little bridges, a teahouse, flowering plant, and cherry trees and maple. It's one of the most tranquil places in the city and it is picture perfect. Throughout the year there are exhibitions and events at the garden; find updates on the attraction website. These include photography shows, maple viewing and moon viewing.

  • I think this is the best garden I’ve seen in the Northeast - with Portland and Vancouver BC being the other two I’ve visited. This garden is very well kept and a great spot for nature photography. The entrance fee is a bit much given the small size of the place but, assuming it goes to the garden, I don’t mind

  • Wow!!! Wow!!! Beyond beautiful!!! Fall is my favorite time to go because the leaves are just incredible!!! Beautifully maintained. You do need to pay to get in, but very worth it. It’s also meant to be a quiet tranquil place... I took my kids and while they were good, they were a bit distracting and loud so probably won’t take them again until I know they can be quieter.

  • Pretty trees, fish and garden manicuring but $8 for adult admission is robbery. $6 if you're a Seattle resident. There is the option of an annual membership for $25 but how many times a year do you want to go to a place like this? Save any visits to actual Japanese gardens for when you make that legendary journey to Japan! Skip this place.

  • The Seattle Japanese Garden was beautiful. Unfortunately we ended up going just before spring, but there was still lots to see here. The trees were stunning, along with many bright flowers. They had a nice big pond and what appears to be model tea houses in attempt to make it more of an authentic Zen garden. This place seems like a great spot for weddings to be held or for cute dates.

  • We went to Seattle to visit during memorial weekend and one of place we decided to come is Japanese garden to take family pictures with my husband camera cause i saw a lot of reviews said that nice place to take pictures . So Tuesday morning we were there @10 and stepped out car and 1 photographer told us we not allowed to bring tripod inside, we did feel weird and she told us just 1-2 day in a month we allow to bring tripod and the reason she said the garden is small not enough space for tripod ( and everyone walking)and we decided to bring it come with us let see the lady said wrong, and when we waited for buying tickets she waited with us to tell customers service that we brought tripod and already told us , and at that time customer service just told us, and i ask here why I didn’t see any sign said like that and she said it was on website, so we not come inside and I never saw any garden said not bring tripod in, not recommend for someone to take pics for your own family
