Shinto priests created the first Japanese gardens to help them communicate better with the gods. Over time, regular Japanese citizens incorporated these gardens into their own homes. Today, these gardens have become an important part of Japanese culture, helping them commune with nature and obtain tranquility in their day-to-day lives. Come celebrate this beautiful part of the Japanese culture at the Yume Tucson Anniversary Festival 2023 this Saturday, April 1st.
