Vibrant leaves transform the Garden in Autumn


Welcome TO Seattle Japanese Garden

The Experience


Seattle Japanese Garden is 3.5 acre urban sanctuary. Winding paths and benches invite you to view the garden slowly and mindfully, in all of its detail - stones, water, lanterns, bridges, buildings, plants and animals. Seasonal changes are constant, and every visit refreshingly unique. Find out more. 



Located near the Madison Park neighborhood of the City of Seattle, the garden is accessible by car, bus, and Light Link Rail. Find out more. 



In November the garden is open from 10 A.M. until 4 P.M. on Tuesday through Sunday, and from noon to 4 P.M. on Mondays. Find out more.
