Located on the Clayton Campus of Monash University, the Rogan-En Garden, was constructed in 1996 for the Japanese Studies Centre by Angyo Nurseries and Japanese master gardener, Mr Hajime Watanabe. All materials were imported from Japan, including the rocks! After a prolonged period of drought, the gardens were planted with carefully selected Australian natives, chosen for their similarity to Japanese plantings, and greater tolerance to the Melbourne climate. Access to this Garden is restricted. Tours are organized occasionally to the Garden but requests can be made to Grounds Curator, Facilities and Services.
