This place is grogeous and so different. Lots to see. Even fun for kids because of the bridges and pathways and huge coi fish. Little cafe and store on site. Highly recommend.

Love this place. Great area to walk with friends, kids, or alone. Gorgeous scenery and very relaxing. Highly suggest the visit. Still worth it even if you are not there on a Monday. Bring a snack to enjoy the sights.

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
