"Japanese Friendship Garden of San Diego" Japanese Friendship Garden Tip by MatthewMetcalfe

  Simply Beautiful!
by MatthewMetcalfe
 
 

The Japanese Friendship Garden is located in Balboa park. San Diego has a sistership with Yokohama and this garden has grown from that Friendship.

The Garden is an excellent place to break away from the crowd and see what a Japanese garden consists of. It's much more than just Bonsai Trees.

There is also a Tea House with a small gift shop in the Gardens as well. This is a great place to relax after a hectic day of sightseeing!

Address: 2215 Pan American Plaza, Balboa Park
Directions: Located in Balboa Park near the Art Museums.
