Last year, senior travelers loved the private tour of the Portland Japanese Garden nestled in Washington Park and with this tour scheduled later in the spring, we should have even more flowers in bloom. A haven of serenity and tranquility, it is considered the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan. In addition to experiencing the beauty and tranquility of the five traditional gardens, the Cultural Village provides a place where visitors can immerse themselves in traditional Japanese arts through seasonal activities, performances, and demonstrations.Lunch is served at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Heralded for quality, farm-to-table ingredients, the Institute’s students will create, cook and serve us a three course, fine dining meal.
