Biographical / Historical:
In 1935, the Garden Club of America invited ninety delegates for a trip that would last over a month touring first Hawaii then Japan. The group had the opportunity to visit gardens quite different from the European and Victorian models they were accustomed to, and the travel logs, on behalf of the members, express precocious wonderment and constant excitement.

In 1935, the Garden Club of America invited ninety delegates for a trip that would last over a month touring first Hawaii then Japan. The group had the opportunity to visit gardens quite different from the European and Victorian models they were accustomed to, and the travel logs, on behalf of the members, express precocious wonderment and constant excitement.

The GCA members arrived in Yokohama on the morning of May 13 and immediately began their tour of Japan with visits to Sankei-en, seaside park, and a private garden where the mayor of Yokohama received them. In addition to Yokohama, the members visited Tokyo, Nikko, Hakone, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Nara. Throughout the trip they were received as distinguished guests by many private gardeners as well as the Japanese Foreign Minister, the American-Japanese Society, the Society for International Cultural Relations, and the mayors of Nara and Yokohama (mentioned above). During this twenty-one-day trip the GCA delegates visited the shrines of Kasuga, Meiji, and Nikko, the Saihoji Moss Garden, Kinkaku-ji ("gold pavilion"), and the Tenryugi and Daitokuji Monasteries; toured the private gardens of Japanese nobility, the collection and garden of the famous art collector Nezu Kaichirõ, and various welcoming individuals; and traveled the natural beauties Japan has to offer including Lake Hakone, the Jukkoku Pass, and Lake Chuzenji.
