Fodor's Review

A serene 20 acres of streams, waterfalls, ponds, and rock outcroppings were created by Fujitaro Kubota, a 1907 emigrant from Japan. The gardens on the Seattle University campus and the Japanese Garden at the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island are other examples of his work. The garden, a designated historical landmark of the city of Seattle, is free to visitors and tours are self-guided, though you can go on a docent-led tour on the fourth Saturday of every month, April through October, at 10 am.
