Japanese Friendship Garden - Review

San Jose is a tranquil place to relax and what better way to do it than in the Japanese Friendship Garden. This lovely place in Kelley Park is a great way to kill a few hours in the city.

The landscaping is simply stunning. The placement of the stones and pebbles and the waterfalls render the place stunning. There are tiny ponds where you will be able to find several water birds and Koi fish as well. There are quaint little Japanese bridges and the architecture is eastern and delightful.

You will also find it to be a great place to take a morning walk or simply meditate in. It is a great hideaway in the city and one should certainly visit it to enjoy the calmness.

Japanese Friendship Garden, San Jose Reviews

  • The garden is completely run down. I had not been here for at least 10 years since 2000's. It's used to be a great well maintained garden. Not anymore! However, the koi pond is under some major renovation and completely drained. So there's hope!

  • There aren't many flowers but there are many trees and other plants. It's still beautiful but would look better with more flowers. The paths are nice, but some of the ponds had no water in them at the time. It could look so much better with some more maintenance.

  • This place is beautiful, like really really pretty. If you want to spend the time absorbing the sights and enjoying a very interesting and peaceful walk, this is a great place to go. If you are in the area i highly recommend it.

  • I looked like it once was beautiful, but do to a recent flood, they let the place go dry in some ponds, and sluggy in another ponset of ponds. The tea House was closed. All power sockets didn't work either. It's basically a small stroll with a few cute bridges at this point.

  • Beautiful place for pictures. As of June 2018, the main pond was drained for maintenance. The other one has many big fat koi fishes. People come here for graduation and wedding photos.
