Illumination 2020 in the Garden
Tranquil Garden Lights
at the Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix
Take a slow romantic stroll through our lit pines. Find yourself surrounded by its enchanting night views which are the perfect ending for a date night or place to meet up before eating downtown with friends.
Wander through our tastefully illuminated Japanese garden for a peaceful and memorable night this holiday season. Unlike many light displays around the Valley, the Garden is a tranquil escape this holiday season. Our three lush acres of artistically pruned pines, mimicking ancient Japanese trees with their twisted trunks and bowing pads, will be glowing from head to toe in an array of jeweled tones. Wash the worries and cares of your day away with each ripple of our twinkling pond and its colorful reflections.
Note: No string lights, Christmas lights, or motion holiday displays. Uplights in various tones accenting the pines only! This night garden is not aimed at children and is very understated, suiting an authentic Japanese Garden.
Do some holiday shopping in our gift shop with an array of authentic, imported Japanese goods which make the perfectly unique and quality present for your friends and family. Japanese sake, beer, and wine as well as Japanese sweet & savory snacks will also be available in our gift shop for you to enjoy during your experience.
Covid19 precautions being followed, limited time-slot entry, mask required, 6ft social distancing, sanitizing surfaces of benches and restroom areas every 30 minutes, and more.
