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.

  • In spite of the fact that picnicking is not permitted in the recreation center, an outdoors feasting range is accessible to guests wishing to buy forte teas, suppers and snacks. The recreation center likewise characteristics flower presentations close to the koi lakes.

  • Amazing beautiful place. Dispute paying a fee to enter, which we were not expecting. I feel it was worth it. Although the weather wasn't great, the gardens and featured examples of Japanese cultured art and garden features were the perfect setting to unwind after taking in the busy San Francisco city. The small but providing a awesome selection of fresh teas and other treats that we couldn't resist. All at a reasonable price with a fantastic staff serving.

  • Beautiful garden and a delightful tea house. It's very refreshing to have a cup if tea and a few of their rice crackers The greatest part is (if your into trivia) the addition of a fortune cookie witch was invented there. I think the current De Young museum right next door looms over you and the unfortunate architecture ruins the peaceful beauty unless you have it to you back all the time.

  • Such a gem of a place. Lots of tourists here but still a relaxing place to enjoy a beautifully curated garden. I liked the gift shop too. As for the price to get in, it was $9 for non-residents of SF and $8 for SF residents. Definitely a nice date spot 😉

  • An absolutely beautiful place to visit when you are at Golden Gate Park. Relatively low prices(there are discounts it you are a SF resident). It is opened year round. There is a small gift shop and a tea house to enjoy teas and cookies. Around the garden, there are signs informing you about facts of Japanese culture. It is also a great place to take pictures with all the Japanese styled structures built throughout the garden.

  • Nice sized Japanese garden, a lovely surprise, very authentic. I spent about 2-3 hours here walking around at s leisurely pace. There's interesting plants, trees, bridges and architecture. I really like the authentic Japanese temple / house it's pretty impressive. The prices for a family are reasonable for San Fransisco and I personally think it's worth the money. It's a taxi / Uber ride away from the touristy parts of San Francisco so try and do the bridge on the same day or you'll be going out of your way twice. I think that it is fine as a place for children and there's ample places for hide and seek and the bridge / stepping stone are very fun. There is also a cafe within the garden grounds which is reasonably priced. Toilets are also inside the gardens if needed. Most of the garden is wheelchair friendly but there are some places that are not such as the stepping stones for obvious reasons! There is a wheel chair entrance / exit which is around the back. On the whole I think it's well worth a visit and the money as I had. A great time walking around. I'm sure it looks totally different in the Autumn months compared to summer so I believe return visits would be fine
