Winter Gallery

The Portland Japanese Garden, covered in snow and ice, is austere and tranquil. Drifting snowflakes, bare branches, and frost-covered lanterns. Winter is a magical time here. With no leaves or blossoms to distract the eye, the trees’ beautiful bones are exposed. Water slows, inviting contemplation and inner quiet. As snow falls, the Garden sleeps, waiting for the first whisper of spring.
