Google Arts & Culture

Portland Japanese Garden was selected as one of 16 partners to celebrate its home city’s thriving cultural scene through the Google Arts & Culture platform. The Garden is proud to be a part of this prestigious project and part of the Google world as it reinforces how we are an indelible thread in our city’s fabric–its history, its culture, and its appeal. Google Arts & Culture is a digital platform and free mobile app that puts the treasures, stories and knowledge of over 4,000 cultural institutions from 85 countries at one’s fingertips. Alongside other local and renowned organizations such as the Japanese American Museum of Oregon, Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, and Portland Art Museum, we have collectively contributed content to “Profoundly Portland,” a hub that celebrates and uplifts our community. Portland is the first city in the American Pacific Northwest to be highlighted on this platform.
