AAA Editor Notes
Seattle Japanese Garden is within Washington Park Arboretum, just off Lake Washington Blvd. E. and just n. of E. Madison St. at 1075 Lake Washington Blvd. E. Designed by a team of landscape architects under the supervision of celebrated Japanese garden designer Juki Iida, this is a world of forests, lakes, mountains and a village compressed into a serene 3.5-acre space. Conifers, maples, flowering cherry trees, rhododendrons, camellias, Japanese irises, ferns and water lilies are among the plants growing in harmony with rocks and water. A copper-shingled tea house, a lake spanned by earthen and plank bridges, an 11-tiered pagoda and an azumaya, or sheltered resting place, are integral parts of the garden.

Guided tours are available.
