Japanese Tea Garden
Located in Golden Gate Park, this garden is a marvel of the landscape architect's art. This traditional Japanese garden covers five acres. Several paths take guests by an authentic pagoda, a monumental Buddha, and a miniature waterfall over an acutely arched bridge that no kid can resist. Overlooking the gardens, a koi-filled pond rests beside a Japanese-style tea house, which is covered with a cascade of wisteria in the spring. The gift shop sells souvenirs with a Japanese flair.
the place was smaller than I thought it was, however it was worth it. Definitely worth 7 bucks! My family and I visit for an good hour, even if the place wasn't big. we took many pictures and we also stop for some snack. it was an adventure. we will definitely go back someday. =)
I loved the Garden, truely beautiful especially in April. So many wonderful looking flowers and plants. Very peaceful. Do take the time to have a cup of tea at the tea house and gently sit at one of the many benches in the garden. It is a wonderful place to take many stunning photographs.
Horrible place to visit. The signs outside the gate say 'FREE ADMISSION'. The only part that we didn't see at the time was 'On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM' or something like that. Not only that, but it was not very peaceful at all. Way over-crowded and there were children running this way and that. Overall, not very worth it.
it was waaay too crowded the day i went. instead of it being a peaceful garden, kids were running around everywhere and it was difficult to take pictures. Portland's japanese gardens are nicer, though not as big.
Walking through the gate you really don't know what to expect, but once you walk the grounds it's like being in a Japanese fairy tale. It's almost otherworldly, just when you think it can't get more beautiful, IT DOES!! The walk is very easy ,there are a few inclines but you ARE in San Francisco and the price ($4) is worth it and it goes back to the community who take care of the grounds. Early in the morning it's free and you won't have to deal with masses of people. It's close to the DeYoung Museum and the California Academy of Sciences so make a day of it you won't be disappointed. Have lots of film on hand, I can't imagine a bad picture can be taken. ENJOY. P.S. The Moon Bridge is a must.
