Portland’s Japanese Garden is located on an adjoining property with the International Rose Test Garden so visiting both of these in one day is easy to do. This serene little gem covers twelve acres and showcases eight different Japanese gardening styles beautifully.

Tickets are $14.95 for adults there are tours available.  However, this is also a great place to wander around on your own.  Slowly, taking time to really experience the sights and sounds.  It can get busy on the weekends, but even then you can usually find a quiet spot to stop and just be.
