Gardens in Japan

Garden Tours in Japan »

Most of Japan’s famous gardens are either temple gardens or inspired by temple gardens. This has resulted in long periods of stable ownership and a reverential attitude to garden design, garden construction and garden maintenance. Furthermore, the climate is warm and wet. Japanese gardens therefore have a well-deserved reputation for being of very high quality.

In addition to these Japanese Garden Finder entries, please see the Garden Tours in Japan page for information on tours, self-guided visits tailor-made tours and gardens open to the public in Japan.
