Japanese Garden

Birmingham Botanical Gardens


Join us for this special chance to explore Birmingham Botanical Gardens' Toshinan, a 16th-century, Sukiya-style teahouse made from materials brought from Japan and built using traditional tools and techniques. Fewer than a dozen such structures exist in the United States, and none is finer than the Gardens' own.


Its authenticity makes Toshinan the perfect setting to experience a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, and the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens is delighted to invite you to do just that during your choice of three special open houses. Enjoy tea as you learn more about this artistic and cultural gem and take in the wonders of the Japanese Garden.

Officially opened by the Japanese Ambassador to the United States in 1967, the 7.5-acre Japanese Garden is a collection of gardens built in the Japanese style and filled with traditional architectural and garden elements.
