JGarden Description:The mission of the UCLA Hannah Carter Japanese Garden is to increase the visibility and access to garden by campus departments, students and the community at large. The garden, designed and constructed by Japanese artisans, is located one mile from the campus in Bel-Air. The garden includes antique carvngs, a main gate, teahouse, bridges, koi pond and a shrine. Staff and volunteers lead tours for schools, garden clubs, campus departments and other interested groups.

The garden was donated to the university in 1965 by Edward W. Carter, then Chairman of the Regents of the University of California. It was created in 1961 by Mr. And Mrs Gordon Guiberson in memory of his mother, Ethel Guiberson, who had organized the Beverly Hills Garden Club. The Guibersons, already knowledgable about Kyoto's gardens, hired Nagao Sakuai to design it. Many features were brought from Japan and reassembled on site. In addition, much of the stone for the design cam from Santa Paula Canyon in Ventura County.

The garden was seriously damaged by floods in 1969, but reconstruction financed by the Friends of the UCLA Gardens and designed by Dr. Kawana, restored the garden to its original glory.
