Vibrant Connections, Transforming Our Worlds

Despite the unexpected events of 2020, we remain committed to fostering connections between Japan and Philadelphia. From conversations with Head Gardener Sandi Polyakov about our historic landscape restoration work, virtual tours of Shofuso, and programs that connect Philadelphia and Japan, we’ve continued bringing people together. With your support, we will continue to accomplish our mission in 2021 and beyond: to inspire mutual curiosity, understanding, and collaboration between Japan and the Philadelphia region.

Help us continue providing this important programming by making a gift on December 1st, and, with your support, we will reach our $2,000 Giving Tuesday Goal.
