About:

Morikami’s gardens, named Roji-en: Garden of the Drops of Dew, were designed to be a living exhibit complementing the museum. Here in Roji-en, designer Hoichi Kurisu sought to create a garden complex for the new millennium. Its six distinct gardens are inspired by, but are not replicas of, famous gardens of Japan. Kurisu has created a unique garden conceived and constructed in the spirit of the masters.

The museum’s galleries play host to several exhibitions of Japanese art and artifacts throughout the year. Featuring different aspects of Japan’s rich and diverse culture, exhibitions showcase items from the museum’s outstanding collection, as well as pieces borrowed from private collectors and other institutions.

Visitors can stroll through the six gardens, dine at the open-air Japanese cafe, explore the art and tea ceremonies, and enjoy a day full of rich Japanese history and culture. Whether you attend on a weekday just to enjoy the gardens, or for the annual Bon Lantern Festival, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is a magical escape to Japan, right in the middle of sunny South Florida.
