Pikmin Garden (ピクミンのいる庭?, lit.: "Pikmin’s Garden") is the official Pikmin section of Nintendo’s Japanese website. It contains various articles with information on the Pikmin series. The website is divided into four main subpages: スケジュール帳 (Schedule Book), 乗組員名簿 (Crew List), 原生生物図鑑 (Piklopedia) and 調査レポート (Survey Report). Recent news on the series is displayed at the bottom of the page, alongside various links to games, movies, merchandise and other information on the Pikmin series.

A Korean version of Pikmin Garden was also released, looking identical to the original version. However, it is outdated, lacking any updates post the release of the website. Smaller versions of Pikmin Garden were also released on various other Nintendo websites. These only feature the Piklopedia and the Daily Comic sections of the website, as well as an exclusive page explaining what Pikmin are.
