Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, named Ro Ho En is an authentic 3 1/2 acre Japanese Stroll Garden with tea garden and tea house. This tranquil and beautiful setting features more than 1,500 tons of hand picked rock, stone footbridges, lanterns and more than 50 varieties of plants. As you stroll the path, you will enjoy flowing streams, a 12-foot waterfall, and a Koi pond with over 300 colorful Koi fish. One of the main attractions at the Japanese Friendship Garden is the Japanese Tea House.
I didn’t even know about this lovely garden till March of this year, when a few of us from Tucson visited it. It is truly an oasis in downtown Phoenix, so plan on attending this family-fun anniversary event, or at some later date.
