About Japanese Tea Gardens, San Antonio

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

  • I have been to Japanese Garden in Houston and San Diego. This garden in San Antonio is the best so far. You will feel like you are lost in heaven. It is much more beautiful than my imagination. I think the best time of the year to go here is Spring time. It is when it has all the flowers. This place also carries some interesting historical stories.

  • What a beautiful place! Stopped there after walking around the Alamo and were pleasantly surprised as to how beautiful it is here. There are a few steps but the also have accessible ramps. Tons of little spots to take pictures and best of all its free!

  • Beautiful floral and water garden. It is restored after suffering from drought. Great place to walk and reflect. Tea house is a pleasant stop as well. Play areas in the park . Frequent wedding photo location. History of the garden is also of interest.

  • I went to San Antonio on a road trip and the Japanese Tea garden was beyond BEAUTIFUL!!!! The waterfall was a perfect location for a family portrait. There are stairs/paths all around the garden made of stone and the paths leading to the main area are canopied with trees. I would definitely recommend this for a walk, hang out, or even a relaxing lunch location.

  • I noticed not many people have reviewed the Japanese Tea Garden, but all of them are perfect scores. I believe this is a San Antonio Hidden Gem that is a must see if your int town. Of course everyone should see downtown, The Alamo and enjoy the river walk, but if like me you spend a lot of time in San Antonio try to get out and see what else they have to offer. Breckenridge Park is a beautiful place to walk, rent a bike, ride a train or see the zoo. The Japanese Tea Garden is also here, and its free. Te garden is located in an old quarry started in the late 1800s. It was later used for concrete, and the old Kiln is still visible along with some of the buildings used by workers. The garden itself has many levels so its a great place to climb around and see some beautiful scenery. There are areas you can be alone and other areas you can see the whole garden. You may notice as you enter the garden the sign says Chinese Tea Garden. I was very confused by this until I was told the name was changed during World War II to prevent vandalism. Who knew there was so much Texas History outside Downtown San Antonio. Get out and see it.
