Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
Are you ready to be transported away without actually travelling across the globe? Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is dedicated to providing an authentic and enriching experience for those looking to explore Japanese culture. Morikami opened their doors in 1977 and serves as a center for the celebration of the Japanese arts and tradition to educate guests and expose visitors to a rich cultural experience. The architecture is inspired by a Japanese villa and the lush garden grounds cover 16 acres around the museum, which features rotating exhibits, monthly traditional tea ceremonies, and festivals. Take a stroll down their meandering pathways, pause for a moment beside the calm reflection pools filled with koi, or lose yourself within their world-class bonsai collection. You’ll swear you’ve left the States behind.
