    This place is a hidden gem in Philadelphia. Entry is $8/$5. In spring and in fall it can be cool to go there, sit down in the garden and relax. In the summer it can be a bit too hot inside (No AC)

    Exquisitely beautiful. Small enough to wander and learn. Peaceful enough to sit and reflect. Everyone there (visitors) respected the quietness and peacefulness. Lovely.

    Beautiful & interesting walk through of a traditional Japanese home! An awesome experience, takes about an hour to walk through. For the best experience, come while it’s sunny!

    For a great view of the garden and pond without having to enter the property, sit on the ledge along Belmont Drive. Also, visit on April 15th for Fairmount Park's annual Cherry Blossom Festival!

    Visit a small and authentic Japanese house. Not a lot to see.

    The Shofuso Japanese House and Garden in Fairmount Park Philadelphia is a typical example of a 16th century Shoin-zukuri style residential house and garden. Learn more by watching our 5-min program. Read more

    They don’t serve tea at this teahouse. I should’ve probably read the fine print. $8 admission

    松風荘日本文化センターでは桜ウィークエンド期間中はプログラムは開催されませんが、すぐ隣のフェアモント パークの敷地内でフェスティバル プログラムが開催されているので、訪れるには絶好の機会です。毎年恒例のフェスティバル期間中、松風荘への入場にはチケットが必要ですが、毎年すぐに売り切れてしまいます。今すぐチケットを予約しましょう!
