The Fort Worth Japanese Garden was completed in 1973. It is a traditional strolling garden with winding paths through the landscapes and around ponds. The garden consists of 7.5 acres filled with cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bamboo, bridges, and ponds filled with koi fish.
Except in the spring, there are few flowers blooming in the Japanese Garden due to the Japanese practice of Mono no Aware. Mono no Aware translates to “transient/bittersweet beauty”, meaning if the garden was always blooming, it would never be special.
