Kurimoto Japanese Garden
The Kurimoto Japanese Garden is a five acre garden, created in the kaiyou (strolling garden) style. The design is authentically Japanese, but utilizes plant species that are hardy to our northern climate. Ornaments and structures include lanterns, pagoda, entrance gate, belfry and asumayas (viewing shelters), along with the Ozawa Pavilion Teahouse and adjoining Ikoi no ba.
Opened in 1990, the Kurimoto Japanese Garden is named after Dr. Yuichi Kurimoto, the first Japanese national to graduate from the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Arts in 1930.
