In 1904, this land was home to a planned community of pioneering Japanese farmers. The agricultural experiment did not work, but in 1977, the 200-acre park was transformed into a tranquil, yet exhilarating Japanese Garden. Today, meander the pathways through six distinct gardens and delight in a fascinating collection of shrubs, trees, and flowers. Discover raked rock zen-gardens, lanterns, a bonsai collection, and waterfall. Lizards scamper through the plants, turtles bask on rocks, birds flutter, koi eagerly wait to be fed at the pond, and if you look carefully, you may even spot an iguana. Visit the museum, Yamato-kan, which features permanent exhibitions exploring George Morikami’s arrival to Florida, and contemporary Japanese culture. The main entrance features a gallery with rotating exhibits, tea-tasting, a café and gift shop. There is a free mobile-guided tour available for smartphones (see website for info) or rent an audio tour for $3. There is a fee to enter, free for kids under 5. Closed Mondays.
