Although this one is not so big but it is still beautiful. The trees, shrubs, the pathways, large koi fishes swimming in the ponds and the turtles too just made everything perfect. Always a nature lover so I am always excited to visit gardens when on a trip. Worth a visit if you love nature.

Maybe it's because i like the japanese aesthetic of perfecting nature, but this spot is pretty special. If you are into gardening or know someone who is, they will appreciate the effort that goes into making this look like a naturally occurring landscape. Great photos around every ben.

Early morning walk. A bit overpriced at $6.00 for a quick walk. However, the walk and the memory is worth a whole lot more than an overpriced cup of Starbucks. Sunny bright day in Seattle, just lucky I suppose.

I have to say, that even in early winter (November) this is a beautiful and peaceful garden to walk through. Though half the trees don't have leaves, there area still others that stay in foliage and bloom year round here. Plus you have the serenity of the water, the fish and of course the turtles. In my opinion this is... More

The Japanese Garden is always fun to visit. But at it's best in the spring and fall. It's a great place to take friends or family who are visiting Seattle. Normally there is plenty of parking.

Its a very quiet and relaxing spot and the Japanese maples of gold, orange and red were just awesome. The grounds keeping is perfect yet the leaves yet to be raked made for a beautiful sight both on the grass and floating down the streams. Highly recommend you visit during late October time of year.

The Japanese Garden in the Arboretum is absolutely beautiful. There is a small fee to enter the garden, but you can stay and stroll the paths all afternoon or to your heart's desire. It is right across the street from the Washington Park Arboretum (which is free), another great attraction. The garden and arboretum are particularly gorgeous in the fall.

Everything seems so nice. All the garden is in a maple red. So quiet and so cool. It's a good place for family tour, even though frequent rainfalls.
