Shofuso Japanese House and Garden
Horticultural & Lansdowne Drs, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19131
Get a first-hand look at Japanese architecture as we restore Shofuso's roof. Our roof is made of hinoki, a Japanese cypress, and is the only one of its kind in the United States. The care and upkeep of a hinoki bark roof demands precision and knowledge of traditional roofing techniques. Only 100 people know how to work with the materials, and all are based in Japan.

This October, Tanigami Roofing Co. LLC, a Japanese roof restoration company, will come to Shofuso and restore part of the roof, preserving it for an additional 15 or more years beyond its predicted life.

From October 11 to October 22, take a guided tour and learn more about roof restoration and Japanese woodworking. A planned scaffold ramp will offer a birds-eye view of the Japanese craftsmen at work during special ticketed tours at 12pm and 3pm during regular admission hours.
