1893-2013 CELEBRATING 120-YEARS OF U.S.-JAPAN RELATIONS IN CHICAGO

The Garden of the Phoenix is located in Jackson Park, Chicago, and has its origins in the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, when the United States and Japan dedicated the site on March 31, 1893 for the Phoenix Pavilion.

Today, the garden continues to grow and reflect both the past and future of U.S.-Japan relations.
