Groundbreaking ceremonies for a Japanese Garden, designed by Dr. P.T. Tono of Tokyo and developed in cooperation with the Memphis Bamboo Chapter of Ikebana International, were held in December of 1965. The Japanese Garden, with its Red Bridge, would soon become one of the most photographed locations in the Memphis area. The Japanese Garden was redesigned in 1989 by noted garden designer, Dr. Koichi Kawana, working with local landscape architect J. Ritchie Smith. Dr. Kawana pioneered the design of traditional Japanese gardens that utilize plants native to the area. Our Japanese Garden is a stroll garden and is home to Canada geese, turtles and koi fish. Koi, a species of carp, are considered valuable in traditional Japanese culture and live for a long time. During the warm months, feeding the koi is a favorite activity for Garden visitors. This Garden boasts a variety of Japanese and regional native plants as well as symbolic elements that are unique to Japanese garden design. Each year, the Garden hosts candlelight tours with stations around the Japanese Garden, giving visitors a chance to learn more about the folklore and symbolism behind the design while strolling through this relaxing area as the sun sets.The Japanese Garden is a popular spot for garden weddings and other rental events.
