KisokWelcome to Kizuna Garden. Kizuna means bond or link in Japanese, and this garden links Pocatello with the world and especially her Sister City, Iwamizawa. The garden serves as a public space where anyone is free to take a rest or contemplate the various plants and art in the garden. It represents our common human desire to enjoy our surroundings and reflect upon the beauty we see around us. Enjoy your journey through this magical place.

Japanese Americans have participated in all facets of southeastern Idaho life, helping feed the people, educate the children, lead through political action and political office, and volunteer to help those in need.

The creation of the Kizuna Garden presents an enduring symbol of the diversity of peoples in southeastern Idaho that have contributed to making it the community it is today
