Invitation for Future Sponsorship

We are always interested in dialogue with individuals and corporates who might wish to be associated with the future development of this major international project.
Funding is required for a number of ornamental garden structures planned in the coming years. Costs also arise annually to replace certain planting and to cover costs of regular visits by a Japanese gardener to provide specialist training in Japanese pruning and other techniques.
Appropriate recognition can be given to all contributors, commensurate with the support given. Recognition of contribution can include:

• Name Inscription on Permanent Garden Plaque
• Acknowledgement on Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens website and other publicity
• Rights to use sponsorship in own publicity
• Guided tours in Japanese for corporate visitors
