Sharon asks…

Japanese Garden Los Angeles?

Does anyone know of any Japanese Gardens in or around the Los Angeles area?

GardenersCardiff answers:

The Huntington has a great Japanese garden and a brand new Chinese garden.

I’m going to give you several recommendations, but the Huntington is the best in Southern California.

Cal State Long Beach has a small Japanese garden called the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden, the web site is below.

Descano Gardens has a small Japanese garden that didn’t impress me much. Probably because I went in July and it was very hot.

UCLA has a Japanese garden you have to make reservations to visit and they don’t give you the adddress until you do.

If you are a Star Trek fan the Japanese garden in Van Nuys was used as a film location several times.

The James Irvine Garden at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center is a beautiful place to visit. Also unexpected considering it’s in the middle of the city.

The Whispering Pine Teahouse & Friendship Garden in Glendale has a traditional teahouse open to the public.

Torrance also has a small Japanese garden called Pine Wind Garden.
