Founder Charles Wood

Charles Wood has received many awards for his efforts to bring an authentic Japanese garden to Mobile.  In 2013 Mr. Wood was the recipient of the Samuel Ullman Award.  This award was presented by the Japan America Society of Alabama (JASA) and was first given in 1992 to those who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of the relationship between Japan and Alabama.  The award was named in honor of Samuel Ullman who lived most of his life in Birmingham.

Statement by Mr. Zen Koide, Mayor of Ichihara City, Japan (Sister City to Mobile)

The Japanese Garden in Mobile seems to be skillfully designed to embody the elements of traditional Japanese gardens and I believe it will greatly contribute to broaden Japanese culture and traditional arts.  As your Sister City, we are all delighted that such an authentic garden will be created in Mobile and we very much look forward to its completion.
