Tojo Garden


One of RIT's hidden gems is a Japanese garden located near Frank E. Gannett Hall. The garden is dedicated in memory of a Japanese student, Yasuji Tojo, who died in a car crash in 1964 after graduating from RIT's photography program. It was completed in 1975, and housed a variety of plants and flowers, including a Japanese maple tree, azaleas, and Japanese irises, as well as a stream and small pond. The garden was revamped in 2011, but many of the major elements, such as a traditional Japanese lantern, stayed the same. Today it remains a quiet retreat on campus.
