Although neither the artist nor her works were able to travel from Japan  to Portland, we have put together a display of her works and videos of Ms. Kanazawa creating her art here for you.


Captivating Videos of Japanese Culture

From our Curator: “I’ve selected videos of Japanese gardens, Zen Meditation, and more. Many thanks to our partners for allowing us to share these exclusive videos!”

Garden Closure

In keeping with health officials’ recommendations to stay home and prevent further spread of COVID-19, Portland Japanese Garden is closed until the spread of this social health threat has adequately slowed down.

We know you share our sentiment that having a space where you can settle the mind and connect with nature during an unprecedented time is important. We hope we can continue to be a place of respite when we are ready to re-open.

Until then, scroll down to enjoy virtual tours and videos of our Garden spaces.

Closure Impacts on Memberships

At this time, we’re asking our community to continue their memberships and if possible renew memberships early and help support the Garden during this time of lost revenue so we can make sure the garden is maintained: aesthetically, physically and financially.

When we closed we lost our ability to generate 74% of our operating revenue. In order for us to sustain the Garden, membership dues are more essential then ever before.

Regarding Extensions: We know how much our members treasure coming to the Garden and want to be there as a resource for you. Especially over the next year when self-care and serenity will be so important. Until we know how long the Garden must remain closed, we cannot give a definitive answer on this. When we have a reopen date, we will be evaluating this issue. At this time, we are hoping that people will continue their memberships through the closure in support of the Garden. Thank you.

If you have specific questions about your membership, please email [email protected] It may take a few days for someone to return your message. But we will get back to you.
