Nippon Center and Yagoto

The Nippon Center has a very well executed and authentic Japanese garden complete with an large dry garden or Zen garden. There is a restaurant in the center of the garden called 'Yagoto'. Unfortunately the Center has lost its funding, has closed its gates, and is rapidly falling into disarray. Cultural programs are offered at this 14th-century-style Japanese mansion featuring a pond of lotus flowers, cherry trees in the spring, a rock garden and a five-star restaurant.

The center is open Monday through Saturday; tours and tea ceremony by appointment.
