The 20 acre Kubota Garden in Rainier Beach, Seattle, Washington is actually a Japanese garden. It is a public garden since 1987 and was created by Fujitaro Kubota in 1927. Kubota was a Japanese emigrant who left Shikoku, Japan in 1907 for the United States. He established the Kubota Gardening Company in 1923 to serve as a cultural center for the Japanese people who are settling in Seattle. It also served as a nursery, an office, and a home for himself.

Today, the garden is under the care of the Kubota Garden Foundation and the Department of Parks and Recreation. The garden is open daily and is often visited by tourists, seniors, and children.

In the garden, you will find The Meeting Lawn, the Necklace of Ponds, the Bamboo Grove, the Tom Kubota Stroll Garden, and The Mountainside. All of these are considered main attractions in the Kubota Garden.
