The Journal of the North American Japanese Garden Association welcomes original articles on the horticulture, human culture, business culture, and wellness related to Japanese gardens in the United States and Canada. We invite articles on history, design/construction/maintenance, services and programming, management and administration, and health and well-being with a local, international or global perspective.

All articles will be subject to review by the Journal editorial board.

Submission guidelines:
