Introducing the world of Japanese beauty and culture
Surrounded by the sea and far distant from the West, Japan developed a highly distinctive culture.
Refined artistic sensibilities and utmost consideration for others are well-known Japanese traits
that are universally praised and draw attention throughout the world.
Happo-en is grounded in all aspects of Japanese culture—traditional gardens, architecture, culinary techniques,
art, music and many others—and we want to communicate these to people all over the world.
The garden, with a pond as its centerpiece, is designed for strolling
Happo-en’s garden, skillfully incorporating the basic principles of traditional garden landscaping, was carefully composed to
reproduce a natural setting. It includes several features of historic importance, such as a display of bonsai trees
over 500 years old, and the “Muan” and “Kahoan” teahouses, transported and rebuilt on site, all harmoniously blending to create an oasis of beauty that brings pleasure throughout the year.
