JGarden Description:The Saginaw Japanese Cultural Center is made up of a tea house and garden and was established as a symbol of cultural exchange with Saginaw's Sister City in Japan, Tokushima. The citizens of both communities shared in the cost of the facilities and the land is jointly owned by both cities. The teahouse was designed by Tsutomu Takenaka and constructed in 1985 as a collaborative effort between the City of Saginaw and its sister city Tokushima, Japan.

Tea ceremonies are held on the second Saturday of each month at 2pm. Those interested in holding weddings or visiting the tea house should call in advance. The gardens are open throughout the year.

In addition to the Japanese Cultural Center, the Saginaw Art Museum and the Lucille B. Anderson Memorial Garden are also located nearby.
