The Portland Japanese Garden is a fun and educational environment for students and a great place for your class’s next field trip! Let one of our knowledgeable Garden Guides be your class’s ambassador to the Garden and receive a discounted rate.
Children in grades 2-12 must be accompanied by a Garden Guide when visiting the Portland Japanese Garden. Tour reservations must be made at least 3 weeks in advance of your desired tour date. We allow a group size of 15-30 people in the Garden at a time. If your group is larger than 30 students and chaperones, the Tour Coordinator can work with you to split up your group. School tours must have a minimum of one chaperone for every five elementary and middle school students, or one chaperone for every ten high school students.
