Come and explore the original beauty and splendor that the Japanese Tea Garden San Francisco has to deliver. With natively beautiful Japanese plants, amazing zen gardens, and serene koi ponds; you can't help but feel the tranquil and serene energy that the Japanese tea garden possesses. This 'Japanese Village' was originally created in 1894 and pays homage to the original design with such features as the arched drum bridges and stone paths. Head over to the brand new Tea House and meditate over a cup of tea while enjoying delicious refreshments and the amazing fortune that awaits inside every bowl of rice and crackers! Such an amazing place to relax and release with botanical views that are sooo worth it!
Peaceful time at the park
Tea garden date for two
Personal tea garden date
We didn’t realize there were 3 gardens to visit. We were specifically going for the tea house so stuck to that garden with our limited time today. It was small but beautiful. We were here a total of an hour. Everything at the tea house was delicious but quite pricey and small portions. Gorgeous place to spend the morning. Hoping to be able to check out the other 2 gardens as well.
This place was absolutely beautiful. My bf and I stopped to have a cup of tea after spending 5 hrs in the academy of science. I didn't have the energy to walk around much, but the beauty of it was breathtaking. It wasn't expensive either. $13 for me, free for my guy cause he's a veteran. From the grooming of the landscape, to the bright beautiful colors, it was perfect. I can't wait to come back and actually explore!
This garden is absolutely gorgeous! We visited right when it opened and it was so quiet and relaxing that we didn't want to leave. The garden is so well maintained and easy to walk around. They also have a tea shop and a gift shop at the back right corner of the garden. One of the structures is under construction so it was covered, but even that didn't take away from the beauty of the place. We were glad we arrived when we did because a lot more people started showing up about an hour after opening and there were even a couple of field trip groups that arrived, so by the time we left it definitely was noisier and not as peaceful. I highly recommend visiting and if you can, go during a less busy time.
It was a peaceful cloudy day in San Francisco. The garden is poetic and Beautiful. I love Japanese art and culture. I loved all the details and references. It is a beautiful experience. It increases my desire to travel to this amazing country. The Japanese Tea Garden is ideal for couple outdoor activities and/or quality times with family.
Absolutely stunning grounds, and everyone was super polite and kind, even other tourists! Super respectful place with gorgeous gardens everywhere you looked. I wish the pagoda was in proper order currently because it would have been a wonderful addition to see, but all the more reason to keep coming back until we get the opportunity to see it ☺️
