Garden Visits

At regional level visits to gardens, both public and private, are arranged for members and guests. Visits to members’ gardens are also arranged. These visits are very popular and help members to gain ideas for their own gardens.

Occasionally, visits to suppliers and nurseries are also arranged. Such visits include stone yards, artefact suppliers and specialist nurseries.
A list of all Japanese gardens open to the public is published in our journal ‘Shakkei’ each year.
