    The Shofuso Japanese Cultural Center offers serenity both indoors and out within the western section of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. The traditional-style Japanese house and nationally ranked garden reflect the history of Japanese culture in the city.

    Visitors are invited to tour the house and feed the koi fish that swim in a pond under a 75-year-old weeping cherry tree, as well as explore the beautiful garden landscape that stretches for more than an acre.

    Accessibility Information

    Because Shofuso reflects the conditions of seventeenth-century Japan, it is not wheelchair or scooter accessible. Shofuso is not easily accessible to users of walkers, canes, or prosthetics. Those devices are permitted in the house so long as they have rubber tips or are covered in a soft protective covering to preserve our historic flooring. For more information, please see Title II of the ADA.
