Who We Are

Applegate Gardens is owned and operated by three Japanese women who have lived in the Applegate Valley for many years, each married American men and raising biracial children. Drawing from our unique backgrounds and experiences, we infuse Japanese-inspired elements into every aspect of our retreat to help guests rediscover their true selves.

Having resided in the United States for nearly 20 years, we intimately understand the challenges of navigating cultural differences and the feeling of losing oneself in the process. Driven by our determination to create a space for personal transformation, we acquired and transformed this retreat into a haven for self-renewal.

We take pride in blending the best of both Asian and Western cultures to offer a retreat focused on reclaiming authenticity and inner peace. We are excited to welcome you to our retreat and share this transformative journey with you.
