Restoring the Japanese Garden

The Huntington is undertaking a $6.8 million restoration and expansion of the Japanese Garden in time for the historic garden’s 100th anniversary in 2012. Among the oldest and most elaborate landscapes of its kind in America, the Japanese Garden has been visited by more than 30 million people since it opened to the public in 1928. It remains one of the institution’s most popular destinations.   

In preparation for the project, a comprehensive master plan was developed by the staff and Board committees. Experts from both the U.S. and Japan were involved, including master designers from Kyoto representing generations of experience.  In the initial phase, The institution will address deferred maintenance issues, make physical and programmatic enhancements, provide better handicapped access, and expand educational facilities.

Key elements of the project include:
Restoration of the garden’s historical core, concentrating on the Japanese House and the infrastructure of the original ponds;
Completion of a new ceremonial tea garden, which will have as its centerpiece a traditional  tea house;
Improvement of public pathways, basic infrastructure, and irrigation systems that will make the garden more accessible and sustainable
