Japanese House and Garden

Location Information

4700 States Drive, Ohio House
Philadelphia, PA 19131

This shoin-zukuri (desk-centered) house, built in 16th century style, is located on the grounds of the Horticultural Center in the West Philadelphia section of Fairmount Park. The perfectly proportioned architecture of the main structure and adjoining tea house is enhanced by an ornamental garden and picturesque pond.

The Japanese House, as it is informally known to Philadelphians, is in a style which would have been appropriate for an educated member of the upper class, such as a government official, high-ranking priest, or wealthy scholar. The extensive use of natural materials creates a serene harmony between the house and surrounding garden.
