"A Bit of Japan in San Francisco" Japanese Tea Garden Tip by painterdave

Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco: 49 reviews and 98 photos


The city of San Francisco has created a beatiful Japanese Tea Garden. Walk through the garden and enjoy the serene setting which feels miles away from the streets of the city. There are some beautiful architectural structures and many photogenic spots. I am including some below.
In the Tea Garden is a small covered area where tea and Japanese munchies are served. It isn't very expensive and you can sit and people watch and enjoy the setting.
This is just a small part of Golden Gate Park but is worth the time to take it in. If you have children and are from a part of the U.S. where there are few Asian Americans, you could turn this experience into a mini field trip for your kids.

Address: Located in Golden Gate Park
Directions: Between John F. Kennedy Dr., and Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr.
Phone: 415-752-4227
