The Denver Botanic Gardens Japanese Gardens.

The first garden, pictured above, is the 松風園 Shofu-en Japanese Garden, which roughly translates as “Garden of Pine and Wind”. The garden features 130 pine trees from the Denver Foothills. It was designed by Koichi Kawana and built in 1979.

The Gardens also feature a Bonsai Pavilion with both local and tropical trees.

The Ella Mullen Weckbaugh Tea House Garden surrounds an authentic Japanese Tea House shipped from Japan and reassembled by skilled Japanese Artisans. The Tea House also hosts traditional tea ceremonies.

These gardens are artfully linked together by traditional architecture and stonework.
