I admit I toured the Portland Rose Garden first and was overwhelmed by the number of roses in bloom. It was a profusion of flowers and aromas and so unlike anything I'd seen before. Even more beautiful than the NY Botanical Rose Garden which I have visited often. So, coming to the Japanese Garden was a bit of a let-down. I was disappointed by the lack of flowers. I followed the path through the natural garden, looked at a couple other exhibits noted on the map and left after about 20 minutes. I would not go again. But I would advise if you're doing both -- tour the Japanese Garden first.
