Kaneji Domoto (November 5, 1913 - Jan. 27, 2002),[1] known as "Kan", was an architect and landscape architect. He attended Stanford University and UC Berkeley, and was interned at the Granada War Relocation Center during World War II.[1] He studied with Frank Lloyd Wright in Taliesin and had a 50+ year career. Kan's career in architecture and landscape design spanned over 50 years, and included both residential and commercial projects. He received many awards for his Japanese-American gardens including the Frederick Law Olmsted Award for his Jackson Park design. He also published a book on bonsai.

Following the death of his first wife, Sally, who died in 1978, he married cookbook author Sylvia Schur. He had 4 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.


Domoto co-authored Bonsai and the Japanese garden (1974; ISBN 0-88453-013-2) with George Kay.
