From Portland Japanese Garden
Portland Japanese Garden is located in Washington Park in Portland, Oregon overlooking the city and providing a tranquil, urban oasis for locals and travelers alike. Designed in 1963, it encompasses 12 acres with eight separate garden styles, and includes an authentic Japanese Tea House, meandering streams, intimate walkways, and a spectacular view of Mt. Hood. This is a place to let go of worldly thoughts and concerns and see oneself as a small but integral part of the universe.
