Designed in 1978 by Haruo Yamashiro, includes a tea house, located in the courtyard of the Social and Behavioral Sciences building.

The Shinwa-En Japanese Garden at CSU Dominguez Hills is a serene and meticulously designed oasis that beautifully encapsulates the essence of traditional Japanese landscaping. Nestled within the bustling campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills, this garden serves as a tranquil retreat for both students and visitors alike.

The garden's design is characterized by its harmonious balance between natural elements and carefully crafted man-made features. A meandering path leads visitors through a lush landscape adorned with meticulously pruned trees, including Japanese maples, cherry blossoms, and pines, which provide an ever-changing display of colors throughout the seasons. Strolling along the winding paths, visitors encounter serene ponds filled with koi fish and adorned with elegant stone bridges. These ponds are surrounded by meticulously placed rocks, creating picturesque vistas reminiscent of classic Japanese paintings.

The architectural elements within the Shinwa-En garden also reflect the Japanese aesthetic, with traditional wooden structures and teahouses nestled among the greenery. These spaces provide opportunities for meditation, tea ceremonies, and reflection, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the garden's tranquil ambiance.

In addition to its aesthetic beauty, the Shinwa-En Japanese Garden serves as an educational and cultural resource for the university community and the broader public. It offers a unique opportunity to learn about Japanese gardening techniques, culture, and history, making it a valuable asset within the university campus.

Overall, the Shinwa-En Japanese Garden at CSU Dominguez Hills is a place of serene beauty and cultural significance, where visitors can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and find solace in the timeless charm of Japanese landscape design.
