Japanese Tea Garden - Review
The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco is a well known characteristic of the Golden Gate Park, initially constructed as an additional feature of the sprawling World's Fair, known as the California Midwinter International Exposition. Since more than two decades, the San Francisco Parks Trusts' Park Guides have been providing free tours to the San Francisco Parks trust members, while furnishing settings and the traditions of this memorable Japanese garden. Being the most prestigious Japanese cultivation in the United States, the garden features a wide inclusion of numerous pathways, lakes and a teahouse characterized with local Japanese and Chinese plants. The enclosures also include numerous figures and spans. The primary proof of fortune treats in the United States lies in association with the tea enclosure. The relatives of Makoto Hagiwara are regarded as the hierarchical introducers of the fortune cookies into the United States from Japan. Guests to the enclosure were served fortune treats manufactured at a San Francisco bread kitchen named as Benkyodo.

Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco Reviews
It's a beautiful face with a seen like feeling. Great place for photos with a breathtaking green background. There are a couple of pagodas that as know color to the place. The only downside is:- 1. Not sure why they have named it a tea garden because there are no tea plantations- it's just a regular albeit a beautiful garden 2. The 9$ entry fee seemed too steep - you can find such gardens in CA without having to pay through your nose.
The scenery is absolutely amazing. It was so beautiful and seeing it in person was way better than i expected. The landscape is very well maintained and is a very relaxing experience. There isn't too much space to walk around cause it did get pretty busy but it wasn't a big deal at all. It was $9 when I went and that's not too bad of a price considering how beautiful it is. It is a place I would love to go again when I am in San Fran.
Probably one of the better Japanese gardens in the US but because it's in San Francisco, parking is going to be so bad, and people will always be photo bombing you. Besides that, the garden has quite a few long walkways, secluded areas, photo ops for those trying to catch a serene photo, a tea shop and gift shop. Parking is in a ramp or on the streets but street parking is like chasing wind and trying to hold on to it. The ramp ended up being $17 for our 1.5 hours there but has a $33 max on the weekends. The garden is right next to a few other attractions so if you have time, make the most of your $33 and hit a few of the other attractions while you're there.
I love their food here. Great flavor and a fair amount of it. Prices are reasonable, especially for teppanyaki. I had a birthday gathering there and they made it easy to accommodate for my group, and even opened the bar for us when it was closed. Very nice people. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is because it had poor air circulation, which made me melt when the chef started to prepare our meal. If you like garlic like me get the garlic fried rice. 👌
What a tranquil spot in the chaos of SF. This place is beautiful created and the features are absolutely exquisite. A perfect place for some great shots and so unique. A great spot if your from out of town or want to spend the day at the Golden Gate Park. It’s about $9 for our of town adults and $6 for residents. So decently priced and sooo worth the money!
