Portland Japanese Garden
Portland, USA

Portland Japanese Garden in Oregon is an oasis of tranquility – and cross-cultural respect and understanding, attracting thousands of visitors each year. It is considered to be one of the most authentic such gardens outside of Japan, and is made up of eight settings, including stepping stones leading to a traditional tea house and a stream and waterfall. In 2017 a cultural village was added to the site, part of the Cultural Crossing project aimed at increasing understanding between Japanese and American culture. Part of the concept was to use partner brands which embodied the bridging of the gap between America and Japan, and for this GROHE's parent company LIXIL was a perfect fit. GROHE products were donated for the staff showers at the Garden, with the sleek modern lines of the New Tempesta Cosmopolitan 100 shower head helping wash away the stress of a hard day’s gardening. The shower’s reduced flow rate also ties in to the sustainability of water that must be close to every gardener’s heart.
