Review of Japanese Garden

Reviewed February 7, 2014

This small Japanese garden is a tribute to the early settlers and farmers who made Mayne Island their home. Sadly in 1942, these Japanese-Canadians were interred and lost their homes and properties. It is compact, but beautifully laid out, and provides a quiet place for reflection on the past.

The history of the Japanese settlers on Mayne Island is chronicled at the gardens which have been created as a memorial to the Japanese families whose lands were expropriated. The gardens are tended by volunteers and their love of the gardens is evident! Don't miss a stop here even on the most windy, rainy day in November they are a special treat.

It was just a beautiful, peaceful place to visit and get a real sense of the dedication the people of Mayne Island felt for their Japanese friends.
