Shofuso, the Japanese House and Garden, is one of the most notable and unusual attractions in Philadelphia. This shoin-zukuri (desk-centered) house, built in 16th century style, is located on the grounds of the Horticultural Center. The perfectly proportioned architecture of the main structure and adjoining tea house is enhanced by an ornamental garden and picturesque pond. ''The Japanese House,'' as it is informally known to Philadelphians, illustrates how natural materials can be used to create a serene harmony between the house and surrounding garden. Guided tours are available.
