Japanese gardens are traditional gardens that feature amazing Japanese aesthetic and philosophical ideas, highlighting natural landscapes. And you don’t even have to go overseas to see them — Washington has a few, and they’re stunning.
1. Seattle Japanese Gardens, 1075 Lake Washington Blvd. E, Seattle
These Japanese Gardens are part of Seattle's Washington Park Arboretum, and they're spectacular. The 3.5-acre urban sanctuary costs $8 to enjoy, but it's well worth it.
2. Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden, Spokane
This gorgeous garden is part of Spokane's Manito Park, and it's the perfect place to relax and reflect (or have an amazing photo shoot). This little piece of paradise is open daily from 8 a.m. until just before dusk.
3. Seike Japanese Garden, 13735 24th Ave S., SeaTac
The Seike Japanese Garden is part of the Highline SeaTac Botanical Gardens. It's always free to visit this beautiful 10-acre oasis, and it's open to the public daily.
4. Kubota Garden, 9817 55th Ave. S., Seattle
This little garden in South Seattle remains a hidden gem, and it's spectacular. Kubota Garden has a pretty interesting history that dates back to 1927 when Fujitaro Kubota bought 5 acres of swampland. It's open daily during the daylight hours, and visiting is free.
