Yes, it’s a shame that the Japanese Garden in Seattle’s Arboretum doesn’t allow dogs in the park. It turns out, however, that Seattle has two Japanese gardens, and the lesser-known one (Kubota Garden) is larger, equally beautiful, free, and welcomes leashed dogs. Love it when that happens!

The park is located in Seattle’s Rainier Beach neighborhood. Directions are provided for car and bus travel. If you drive, be sure to tuck your belongings into the trunk of your car, or carry them with you.

[Dog Jaunt’s friend Jessica, of You Did What With Your Wiener, and Chester and Gretel, her Dachshunds, visited Kubota Garden in July 2013, and here’s their excellent post about it.]
