We have a rich history and deep sense of community dating back to the original owner and visionary, Taro Yamagami. He started Yamagami’s Nursery as a fruit stand in the midst of orchards in San Jose, California. With his brother Jiro, Taro Yamagami is credited with designing and installing many of the older landscapes in the area. Taro was one of the first to be awarded a license in Landscape Architecture in the state of California. The nursery, in his mind, was a means of supplementing his landscape architecture and installation business. In 1953, Taro hired a young man, Mas Oka. In 1963 Taro decided to concentrate on the landscape portion of his business and sold the nursery to Mas and Betty Oka. Keeping the name of Yamagami’s Nursery, Mas & Betty proudly upheld the Yamagami way of doing business.
