Portland’s Famous Japanese Maple
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” Paulo Coelho,
"Proclaimed the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan, the Portland Japanese Garden is a 5.5-acre haven located within Washington Park in the west hills of Portland, Oregon, USA.
The Portland Japanese Garden is composed of five distinct garden styles, and it’s most popular (and certainly most photographed) inhabitant is surely the stunning Japanese Maple seen above (there’s even a Flickr group dedicated to the tree!)."
