Saginaw, MI 48601
Welcome to Japanese Cultural Center, Tea House and Gardens of Saginaw
Welcome to our strolling garden. Its gate opened in 1971 as designed by Mr. Yataro Suzue and Lori Barber.
He stated then: 'beauty is not trickery, not illusion ... but arranging elements like trees, water and rocks in a way that there is no crowding, no competition for attention.'
Take a Garden Walk
Our three-acre garden slopes gently to the shore of Lake Linton. It is a quiet, safe haven to view weeping cherry trees, authentic stone lanterns, hand crafted bamboo gates, an Asian-inspired gazebo, and an arching vermilion bridge over a winding stream.
You may explore our tea house on a 'Tea & Tour' ($5/person - cash or check only). Our trained docent explains the tea ceremony as well as how Japanese hand tools were employed to construct this sukiya (rustic) structure. You are served green tea and sweets, all traditionally and beautifully presented. See our Services & Fees page to view all our amenities.
