Kubota Gardens

Hidden in South Seattle, Kubota Gardens is a stunning 20 acre landscape that blends Japanese garden concepts with native Northwest plants. Kubota Gardens is a historic landmark that was the former 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 Gardens are a spectacular setting of hills and valleys, interlaced with streams, waterfalls, ponds, bridges, and rock out-croppings with a rich array of plant material.
