Members of the Golden Crane Society are the Portland Japanese Garden’s most generous annual donors, helping more than 500,000 visitors each year to enjoy the serenity and beauty of the gardens, and to enrich their lives by exploring the riches and wisdom of Japanese art and culture. With their generous support, members of the Golden Crane Society are giving exclusive access to programs and special events, including Art in the Garden exhibition openings and advance ticketing to sell-out cultural events like O-Bon and the Moonviewing Festival.
