The 12-acre  (4.9 ha) Portland Japanese Garden is composed of eight garden spaces and a Cultural Village. As a Japanese garden, the desired effect is to realize a sense of peace, harmony, and tranquility and to experience the feeling of being a part of nature. Three of the essential elements used to create the garden are stone, the "bones" of the landscape; water, the life-giving force; and plants, the tapestry of the four seasons.

Presented by the Alliance Française
in partnership with Oregon Accueil.
