Guided K-12 School Tours

The Portland Japanese Garden is a fun and educational environment for students and a great place for your class’s next field trip! Let one of our knowledgeable Garden Guides be your class’s ambassador to the Garden and receive a discounted rate.

Children in grades K-12 must be accompanied by a Garden Guide when visiting the Japanese Garden.  Tour reservations must be made at least three weeks in advance of your desired tour date. We allow a maximum group size of 30 people in the Garden at a time. If your group is larger than 30 students and chaperones, the Tour Coordinator can work with you to split up your group. School tours must have a minimum of one chaperone for every five elementary and middle school students, or one chaperone for every ten high school students
