- Professor Kannosuke Mori created this place in memory of Dr. Inazo Nitobe (1861-1933), an esteemed educator in Canada. The UBC garden opened in 1960, and was designed using the principles of Zen and Shintoism. Visitors leisurely stroll its curving paths counter-clockwise, as the garden progresses from beginning to growth and change to an ending. Japanese maples, flowering cherry, azaleas, irises and a reflective pond filled with Japanese koi provide color all year-round. Admissions by donation. Opening hours vary seasonally.
