The Japanese Garden is one of the very few tourist attractions in Portland. If you are visiting as a tourist it's worth checking out, it's also nice if you local and looking for something different to do.

One of the many natural wonderlands inside Portland's city limits, this gorgeous, tranquil park is a network of five different styles of Japanese garden, including a zen rock garden and a tea house. You could easily spend an entire afternoon walking, sitting, and drinking tea here, or make a day of it and visit the other sites nearby, including the zoo and the Rose Garden.

The Portland Japanese Garden is a great way to relax on a Sunday morning. The green moss scenery, stepping stones, and gentle, cascading waterfalls blends well with the Pacific Northwestern scenery.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

Beautiful spot, and I believe it was the first major Japanese Garden in the West (or maybe the largest?). They host cultural programs throughout the year including children's day, which I found a lot of fun as a kid.

Peaceful, serene and beautiful. Designed by the vision of Professor Toto, a renowed, major landscape architect from Japan. The tranquility of walking through these five acres offers a really authentic, old-world Japanese experience within downtown Portland.

Any time of year this is a beautiful place to walk around. If you come at the right time you might see a bonsai tree competition or other display of awesomeness.
