Anderson Japanese Gardens is a tranquil oasis located in Rockford, Illinois. Hoichi Kurisu, a world-renowned Japanese garden designer, created the gardens and the North Americans regard it as one of the most remarkable Japanese gardens in the United States.

Spanning 12 acres of land, the gardens feature beautiful tea houses, 16th-century style gazebos, pavilions, waterfalls, babbling brooks, and a wide variety of colorful plants and flowers.

Guided tours are available for those who want to learn more about the history and design of the gardens. Be sure to visit Fresco at the Gardens for a unique dining experience amidst the colorful plants and tranquil waterscapes.

We think a visit to the gardens is one of the best things to do in Rockford, IL!
