There are almost 300 botanic gardens and related organizations in Japan. Their size, characteristics, and plant collections, as well as activities, differ from one to the next. This makes Japanese botanic gardens very diverse and dynamic. 

The many garden visitors enjoy, not only special collections of Japanese native plants from mountainous regions, deciduous woodlands to various aquatic habitas, but also the plant collections representing the history, as well as traditional skills and knowledge of Japanese horticulture.
