  • This garden is very well done in Japanese style. The entry is free but there are too many tourists. We couldn’t really find parking right away. Its is a great garden but it is not a must see when in S...  more »
  • Yes, the fall foliage is spectacular - but this exquisite Japanese nursery/garden-turned public park is full of beautiful vistas in any season. A waterfall, ponds, traditional stone or wooden bridges ...  more »
  • This is a jewel of a garden - 50 acres of lawns, ponds, waterfalls and paths through an abundance of beautiful shrubs and trees. It was a beautiful day which always makes one feel good about being out...  more »

  • This place is so beautiful. The paths are well taken care of and the landscape is incredible. I love all the flowers and trees that seem to endlessly flow together. There is a great space to hold small events that is quiet and high stop one of the areas. It's great for long walks or to bring kids to for exploring.
  • Whenever travelling I always look for a local Japanese garden for a bit of peaceful solitude. I was recently visiting Seattle to get away for some soul searching. Finding the Kubota Garden was like finding a diamond in the Emerald City. I've visited several gardens across the United States and I must say that this is one of my favorites. No fancy buildings, tea houses, or Japanese architecture. Instead you find yourself getting lost in the actual garden...after all, that is what it is. Meandering trails and paths, water features, waterfalls, flowering bushes, and manicured lawns. Absolutely breathtaking. One of the best in the nation.
  • This place is awesome. Meg & found it online & decided to check it out. What a beautiful masterpiece of engineered nature. It reminds me of the parks in central Tokyo but here a greater density of life forms enchants the landscape with a magical wonderful & interesting experience. The life long work of a master gardener, rest his soul. Definitely worth exploring more!
  • Absolutely beautiful, hidden paradise, on the edge of the city. Wear good shoes, bring your camera and enjoy. If you come with kids or drinks, just know that the only bathrooms are located near the front entrance and art port-a-potties, often without toilet paper. Had to "rescue" a mom with packet of kleenex the other day. Other than that, it really is stunning.
  • Looks good in general, has beautiful flowers, has interesting zoning. Ponds look a bit nasty, not much of decor for Japanese garden. Location is just terrible. Bike and pedestrian trail from Link station goes through someone​'s back and then gets lost in nowhere, very far from the entrance to the garden.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
