The 6.5-acre Japanese Garden in Van Nuys is open 5 days a week. It was opened to the public in 1984 and has since served as an ideal place of rest and meditation.

It is conveniently located close to the 405 freeway in the Valley -- we encourage you to take a visit. It usually has only a handful of visitors and offers more than enough space to walk in peace -- the park even features alternate pathways. And yes, we have posted a photo essay about this very same subject before! Maybe we just really like this Japanese garden.
