Ichimura Miami-Japan Garden

Harmony is the soul of Japanese Gardens. And no where is harmony more evident than in thisthe third incarnation of Ichimura Miami Japan Garden. The Garden's birth began back in the 1950s when Kiyoshi Ichimura, founder of Tokyo-based Ricoh Company, Ltd., fell in love with Miami. He donated $300,000 for the creation of the first Japanese garden as a tribute to the beauty of Magic City.

Ichimura
In addition to the donation, Mr. Ichimura dismantled objects and materials from Tokyo and had them sent to Miami.
Ichimura
He even sent the carpenters, gardeners and a landscape architect to design and construct, what became the San-Ai-An Japanese Garden in 1961.
Ichimura
That garden was housed in the heart of what is now Parrot Jungle Island.

But the City of Miami was dedicated to Mr. Ichimura's vision and with the creation of Parrot Jungle Island worked meticulously to redesign and reconstruct the Ichimura Miami-Japan Garden  to its present location just feet from its original home.
