JGarden Description:The MEITEC US-Japan Friendship House is a three-story Victorian house offering an intimate setting for discussions between scholars, artists, scientists, and opinion leaders who share the common goal of improving US-Japan relations. Meitec provides use of these facilities as a service to the cultural and intellictual communities in an effort to creatively redefine mechanisms of cultural exchange.

This Friendship House has a 7500 square foot Japanese garden open by appointment. The garden is dedicated to former Senator and Ambassador to Japan, Mike J. Mansfield, Zen Associates Inc. originally designed the garden in 1990, but Mr. Tanaka of Japanese Garden Design has since supervised the evolution of the garden, guiding its maintenance and growth. 




The rippling wisteria
That I planted by my house
As a momento
Of thee whom I love
Is at length in blossom.

  Manyôshuû
