Kubota Garden


Kubota Garden is a 20 acre Japanese garden located in the Rainier Beach neighborhood of Seattle. The city acquired the property in 1987 from the estate of master landscaper Fujitaro Kubota. Kubota was a horticultural pioneer when he began merging Japanese design techniques with North American materials in his display garden in 1927. The Garden is a spectacular setting of hills and valleys, interlaced with streams, waterfalls, ponds, bridges, and rock out-croppings with a rich array of plant material.
