Another of Seattle’s hidden gems: Kubota Garden

me @Kubota

FujIMG_2181itaro Kubota was a talented landscaper who was born in Japan but made his home in Seattle, where he created an amazing display garden that fuses Japanese gardening techniques with plants that are native to theĀ Pacific Northwest. The City of Seattle acquired this historical landmark in 1987, and now the 20-acre expanse isĀ open to the public every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. For free!

It’s a gorgeous place to go for a walk in south Seattle (on 55th Ave S). Waterfalls, ponds, lawns, hills, and lush greenery surround you in this peaceful atmosphere. But rather than describe it, I’d rather share my photos.IMG_2175IMG_2155IMG_2149IMG_2161IMG_2174
