Very beautiful and must see in the GG Park. Go on a week day and avoid some of the crowds. SF residents get a discount entrance fee.

A few years ago my husband Joe and I toured California for 3 weeks driving from Lake Tahoe to San Diego. San Francisco was one of our stops. What can I say about the city of hills? You have to be in good shape to climb Lombard St., the steepest street in the USA. How do they park cars there?... More

Nice, tranquill setting. A beautiful spot to wind down and relax. There is a tea shop there where you can order tea and enjoy the serene surroundings. However, with all good things, there's always a line. Recommended to allocate some time to order tea and enjoy the surroundings.

If you have an hour or so take some time for reflection and recuperation from the hustle and bustle, just a perfect end to the day!

This beautiful spot in Golden Gate Park is a great place to slow down at the end of a day's sightseeing. The attention to detail is brilliant. (Actually visited in May 2013)

A very nice, not great garden with some cool pagodas and Japanese structures. My wife and I had some tea in the tea room (her choice) and it was kind of sweet. A couple cups, a tea kettle with great company in a Japanese tea Garden. Made for a very enjoyable couple hours.

The Japanese Tea Garden is truly a treasure and wonderful in so many ways. It's actually more of a full treasure chest than simply a single treasure. It is of course aesthetically pleasing, and lovely to walk around as well as to sit and admire. Yet there's so much more! Find the little tea bush, locate the oldest tree in... More

The weather was moody and it was nice to have a cup of tea to warm up. It's a very nice spot in the park.

This is a part of the Golden Gate National Park. There is a separate entry fee of 7$.Lots of koi ponds, waterfalls and crisp landscapes. Lots of pagodas. There is a tea house but we did not get a chance to eat there. There are food trucks in the park and you can choose from them. We chose Annakoot which... More

When our in laws came for a visit several years ago, we brought them here as part of their San Francisco tour. They were impressed that such a garden existed within the city limits and thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t believe that any of my relatives have ever traveled to the Far East like I have so, this was as... More
