Enjoy Japanese Gardens from Home
As most gardens have temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we encourage you to support and follow your favorite gardens online- and explore new ones.
We have created this resource page for virtual tours, books, videos, websites and other content you may enjoy. If you would like to contribute content, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love the opportunity to share your garden through our network.
Please check back periodically as we will update this page regularly.
We hope you will continue to enjoy the beauty and calm of Japanese gardens from home.
