Public Japanese Gardens

Public Japanese gardens are an important educational tool.  Ask a serious Japanese garden enthusiast (or even a pro) about his or her first encounter with the subject, and it's likely that you'll hear a story about a visit to a public Japanese garden.

The Japanese Garden Journal publishes regular articles about public gardens.  Not only do these articles talk about the gardens themselves, but the articles also discuss topics related to managing public Japanese gardens.
