Japanese Tea Gardens - Review

This particular Japanese Garden has a bit of an unwieldy history. Built on the site of what was originally a quarry, the only initial Japanese influences were a Japanese pagoda and then a Japanese Torii Gate. In 1919 the city invited, Kimi Eizo Jingu, a local artist was invited to move into the garden and he and his wife opened up the Bamboo Room, serving light lunches. Post WWII, the place began to fall into disrepair and only in 2005 did some serious restoration work started. So what to do here? Well, the Sushi is quite good. It’s clean, and peaceful and tranquil.

It’s not that large so there isn’t much to explore, but every corner of the place has been crated with such an attention to detail that you could spend a good while just appreciating each one. Bronze signs guide you over the five acres of this place. And you should really try and climb up the drum bridge – it only counts of you, do it gracefully.

Japanese Tea Gardens, San Antonio Reviews

  • The gardens are beautiful. This whole place is amazing. You can tell they really take care of the plants. It's free which is amazing considering they could charge and people would definitely pay to go. They do charge for professional photoshoots. The tea house made very refreshing bubbly tea. Overall it's a great place to visit

  • Enter this place and you are in a different world altogether. For me it was like entering Pandora's Hallelujah mountains (watch Avatar in case you are looking for reference). Go on a weekday and/or avoid holidays. It gets busy on those days. Entrance is free. Just don't pluck any flowers or trees. Their parking lot is awfully small. So, choose the one on the left side of the main (road entrance), abt 150meters away from the place.

  • This place is so beautiful!!! I've lived in San Antonio almost my whole life and had never gone. I now know that was a HUGE mistake!!! It is a huge place and has a small cafe near the front. There is lots of stairs so you get a bit of a workout, but it is 100% worth it!!! The view is so amazing!!! There is ponds, tons of trees and beautiful flowers, and a tall beautiful waterfall. I recommend taking a hat, sunscreen, and water bottles. It gets really hot if you go in the summer, so you need to be very careful. Although, there is a lot of shady spots and places to sit down. Make sure you take a camera because you will want to take pictures. Most importantly have fun!!!

  • Beautiful scenery. Although they do have a handicap/stroller access to the lower level of the garden, the remainder of the grounds required stairs to get around. The shop served some refreshing drinks perfect during the afternoon heat! Would definitely go when all travellers are able bodied to walk up and down stairs.

  • Beautiful place to enjoy some nice views and short trails! As soon as you walk up the stairs, you get a really nice overview of the small garden and pond with a single waterfall backdrop. There are plenty of nice flowers and plants around, although there isn't a ton of shade. The place is remarkably green, even during the summer. The pond is large and contains quite a few Koi fish. The park itself is a little smaller than I expected, but it's still really nice to visit. There are also some short back trails that lead you to the zoo. Definitely recommend checking this place out, especially if you're already in the area.
