[Warning: Young adults from Central Florida in for vacation] This place is much larger than it looks. We weren’t able to enter during a ‘free admission day’ (which there are many of) but there were plenty of people during our Thursday visit; yet there were...More

The tea garden is a fenced area in Golden Gate park. You need to pay to enter the garden. The garden, trees, houses and bridges in the garden are beautiful.

We went here with family who were visiting and had a great time. We ended up taking a free 1 hour "City Guides" tour of the gardens, which made the experience that much better. Highly recommend coordinating with one of these tours if you can....More

Beautiful space. But very hard to enjoy in a busy weekend. Was hoping for a more peaceful setting, and time to enjoy the space, especially when an entry fee is charged

I was a bit disappointed with the japanese Tea Gardens. Yes, they are beautiful. But there was not much to see. I think I spent 20 minutes walking around and taking photos, and then said, what else is here? So, it is a brief escape...More

I have always loved this garden, going back to my internship year in SF in the mid 80's. Its gotten more crowded, as has most of SF, but its still absolutely lovely and can inspire serenity, reminding us to breathe and be present. Go visit.

The tea garden would be a beautiful place to pop the question. Especially on a day where the weather is cooperative. I would recommend staying away from the tea room and look for one of the more remote and beautiful areas... More

Trip Advisor has the wrong address and map shown on here. The Japanese Tea Garden is definitely located in Golden Gate Park, right next to the De Young Museum. The full address is 75 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, San Francisco... More
