For more than 50 years, the Portland Japanese Garden nestled in Washington Park has been a haven of serenity and tranquility. It is considered the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan and one of the foremost Japanese cultural organizations in North America. In addition to experiencing the beauty and tranquility of the five traditional gardens, we’ll visit the CulturalVillage which 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.
