Nitobe Memorial Gardens


Truly a place for reflection. When the Emperor of Japan strolled through UBC’s Nitobe Memorial Gardens, he declared, “I am in Japan.” And you can be, too. This highly curated, traditional Japanese garden has become a welcome respite for students and locals, though it’s generally free of crowds. Hint: Come in the springtime for the full cherry-blossom effect.

Where?: Here’s a map. Tea Ceremonies: Witness an authentic Japanese tea ceremony in the serene confines of the garden. Schedule is here
