The Kubota Garden features streams, waterfalls, ponds, rock outcroppings and an exceptionally rich, mature collection of plants. This unique urban refuge displays over sixty years of vision, effort and commitment by the Kubota Family. In 1927 Fujitaro Kubota bought five acres of logged-off swampland in the Rainier Beach neighborhood of Seattle and began his garden. He wanted to display the beauty of the Northwest in a Japanese manner. His Rainier Beach garden grew to become a 20-acre display center and nursery and for many years was a center for social and cultural activities for the Japanese community in Seattle. It is now a Seattle historic landmark of exceptional beauty.
