Welcome to
Japanese Cultural Center,
Tea House,
and Gardens of Saginaw



Welcome to our strolling garden. Its gate opened in 1971 as designed by Mr. Yataro Suzue and Lori Barber.

He stated then: "beauty is not trickery, not illusion ... but arranging elements like trees, water and rocks in a way that there is no crowding, no competition for attention."

Our Mission: "to promote intercultural understanding and peace through a bowl of tea."
