Inspired By A Love
of Japanese Design

Welcome to the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden. Hidden in the heart of Pasadena, this historic jewel, that was once reserved for the enjoyment of an aristocratic Pasadena couple, has been re-imagined as a space to be shared.

Conceived in the 1930s as a private estate garden, and hidden from view for decades, a historic restoration brings new purpose to this place of special beauty.
