Portland Japanese Garden

As part of my family vacation this summer, I visited the city of Portland, Oregon. While there I visited the Portland Japanese Garden. This garden first opened in 1963 and was designed by Takuma Tono. 

Currently, the garden consist of five separate gardens (Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, Tea Garden, Natural Garden, and a Sand & Stone Garden). Unfortunately, I made the mistake of visiting on a Sunday morning. As a result, it was very crowded. I would recommend a visit on a weekday instead, or pay the fee to become a member and gain access to the garden several hours prior to its daily opening to the public.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the visit:
