This garden was created in 1962 to honor Norfolk’s sister city, Moji, Japan and was rededicated in 1963 to Kitakyushu, formerly Moji. The Japanese Garden was redesigned and refurbished in the summer of 1995. The design is inspired by the traditional hill and pond style of Japanese gardens. Look for signature elements in the garden such as evergreen plants, stones and water.
