Located in Little Tokyo, the James Irvine Japanese Garden, also known as the Seiryu-en, or “Garden of the Clear Stream,” is one of the most uniquely elegant outdoor wedding and event venues in Los Angeles. Featuring a 170 ft. stream flowing from a waterfall at the upper reaches of the garden, blooming trees and foliage and the sound of cascading water, the space executes charm and serenity. The Garden provides an intimate, romantic, and private setting for your special day.
Receptions will take place in the new Toshizo Watanabe Culinary Cultural Center set to open in early January 2020.

JACCC and Anne were amazing. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and there were no real hassles with dealing with them. The day-of coordinator is even my friend on Facebook now! They made my special day even better since I got new friends out of it too!Sent on 10/27/2014

Breathtaking, serene, gorgeous, accommodating and professional. I cannot say enough to express how I feel about this venue.Sent on 05/21/2013
I am an event planner. I helped my cousin plan his wedding reception here, recently. The staff was completely available, and friendly, to us, anytime we needed really. The couple wanted church wedding, otherwise, we would have done the ceremony here as well. Having a wedding offsite, however, was made very easy for me because I could completely trust the coordinators and staff to handle everything necessary for the reception to start off without me there yet. The entire night went just a smooth. The bride and groom couldn't be happier! And every single person in our family came to me, saying they want their wedding there too.
I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone who asks! I hope to have the pleasure of working with JACC again!

I recently go married at this beautiful little Japanese garden, a great little gem tucked in the middle of downtown LA. We had a great time there. Anne was so helpful on the day of our wedding, making sure every detail was in order. It's true that she is hands off during most of the planning, but that you may also hire her to plan your entire event. My husband and I felt we got way more than we payed for on the day of the event. Like myself, most brides work in frenzy trying to perfect their big day and don't realize that Anne will make sure it all comes off without a hitch as long as you let her do what you paid her to do. That's how I got hitched anyway. Lots of things went wrong and I was the only one who knew. Remember that ladies!Sent on 03/02/2012
Back to the venue...absolutely beautiful and intimate, romantic as the sun starts to set. This place is unique and I had so many people asking how I found this amazing place. The price was very fair and Anne was AWESOME! You really felt she cared as much as your big day as you did. Sometimes you need just that to make you feel good. I'd highly recommend this venue. Check it out if you're looking for an intimate garden wedding. Good Luck out there!
