Visit a traditional Japanese garden that spans 3.5 acres.

The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix sits on 3.5 acres and it truly has so much natural beauty. The garden helps visitors feel a sense of calm and serenity as one walks throughout the winding paths. There are sculptures, a cobblestone beach, a 12-foot waterfall, a stream, a lovely tea garden, a tea house, and a Koi Pond. Visitors also enjoy the stone footbridges, lanterns, and many other elements.

The Garden began as a shared cultural vision of the sister cities of Phoenix, Arizona and Himeji, Japan. Inspiration was gained when a delegate from Phoenix visited Japan in 1988 and viewed several of the gardens there. In 1988 and 1999, a team of landscape architects from Himeji visited Phoenix to help implement the design.

The garden offers classes and workshops and a public tea ceremony once a month. There is Japanese crafting and so much to see and participate in here. The gift shop has Japanese snacks and special items for sale, as well. Entrance into the garden is $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens, $7 for students, military, and those aged 6-17, and free for those 6 and under. The garden is closed on Mondays, but Tuesday-Sunday it is open from 9-4.
