Yume Japanese Gardens

The blending of these two traditions is unusual among Japanese gardens in North America. It creates a serene frame for something exceptional at Yume. They offer a transformative program of therapeutic garden walks, shown in research and practice, to soothe the spirit, gentle the mind, and restore the heart in the face of mental distress.

While you may step into Yume thinking only to enjoy its peacefulness and living beauty, you will also find in its interpretation of nature an invitation to cross a subtle threshold and reshape your inner landscape to achieve a renewed sense of emotional resilience and contentment.
