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.

  • Loved visiting this place. Stayed in San Antonio for the weekend and out of all the places we went to... we enjoyed the Japanese Tea Garden the most. Beautiful scenery. Doesn't cost anything. Yummy cafe is inexpensive and had delicious teas. Only downfall is the parking space is not very big unless you park a little further and walk over to entrance. But overall a wonderful visit!

  • Beautiful historic location. Peaceful location amongst the bustle of traffic. Easy parking. Busy on weekends. Picturesque landscaping providing the perfect background for wedding, engagement, or other personal photography moments. Or a picnic with the family.

  • This place is perfect! The view is amazing ♡ Great place for a shooting or just to take nice pictures. I wish I could go and do yoga, it's kinda peaceful and beautiful to see. At the end I was confuse cause it says is Japanese but the entrance says Chinese.

  • This was one of the spots that my girlfriend had picked for us to go while on vacation in San Antonio. We got there early, close to opening and the parking lot had like one other car in it. It was humid and a light rain, but we brought our umbrella so we were fine. The place was beautiful and peaceful. We took a lot of nice pictures. The admission was also free, that was a surprise because you can tell it takes a lot to keep this place looking like it did. I would definitely recommend it.

  • This garden is absolutely breathtaking and genius. Nearly every angle from every spot is absolutely beautiful. I'd even take someone here on a date, it's that great. The food they serve is also pretty good, including their ice cream which you can eat while walking around this beautiful location. I'd reccomend it to anyone with even the slightest interest in how beautiful nature can truly be.
