AAA Editor Notes
Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is off Montgomery Dr. at Belmont Mansion Dr. next to the Horticulture Center within Fairmount Park. The house was built in Japan in 1953 in a style that would have been intended for an educated upper-class person living in the 16th- or 17th century; the house displays a combination of elements from both centuries. The America-Japan Society of Tokyo gave it to New York's Museum of Modern Art for an exhibition, and afterward it was moved to Philadelphia.

A tea house adjoins the main house. A pond and ornamental garden also are on the grounds.

A tea ceremony is held on occasional Sunday afternoons by reservation. Visitors must remove shoes before entering.

Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
