Finding Solace in Winter

Three essential elements of a Japanese garden are stone, or the “bones” of the landscape; water, the life-giving force; and plants, the tapestry of the four seasons.

During winter, the inner essence and beauty is revealed. Against a backdrop of evergreens, notice the twist and turn of each branch and the intentional placement of every stone. Between the quiet stillness and the gentle Pacific Northwest rain, find solace and serenity in winter at Portland Japanese Garden.
