Earlier this month, we learned with great sadness that Portland Japanese Garden announced that it will be closed indefinitely, due to the corona virus outbreak.  As Portlanders, we at Hokusei North America hold a special place in our hearts for the Japanese Garden — it is a source of beauty, tranquility, and cultural learning that will be missed sorely.  Just as importantly, we will miss interacting with the Portland Japanese Garden team that have made it such a great success, attracting visitors from around the world.

When the corona virus pandemic is over, and the Portland Japanese Garden decided it is appropriate to re-open, we at Hokusei North America will be ready to continue working its staff, to support its gift store operations and cultural events.

Until then, we wish the best of health & spirits to all of our friends and fellow community members involved with the Portland Japanese Garden.
