Let's just say if you're expecting to see a huge garden with acres and acres of beautiful Japanese Zen, then don't go with high expectations like we did. First of all, they charge admission. If you're from out of town, they charge more to go...More

Loved walking around this serene garden. Beautiful photo oppotunities for a photographer or a family looking for a nice spot. We didn't try the tea room, but loved the gift shop.

Beautifully designed and quirky with sculptural plants offering varied colours and textures, this is an oasis of calm. I loved the ridiculously high bridge, the meditative buddha, the shop and the fact that you can wander the twisty paths and lose yourself for a while.

My spouse and I decided to visit the Japanese Tea Garden. Admittedly, we did no research and it was kind of a spur of the moment decision. We decided to go anyway after we discovered there was a $9 per adult fee. After going in...More

The Japanese Tea Gardens within San Francisco Golden Gate Park complex is well laid out complex. It provides serenity, calmness and is a refreshing visit. You can easily spend 2-3hours in the garden amongst the natural surroundings. Must visit the cafeteria and gift shop within...More

I didn't realise this place had an entry fee when I arrived, but for $9 it's not a bad price. The garden's are genuinely very beautiful, and each area has it's own character. If you appreciate Japanese aesthics or even just enjoy exploring beautifully cultivated...More

I'm a local, and I've been here many times. It's a beautiful botanical garden, and it's a bit unique. Recommend it for tourists and locals.

As much as I foolishly thought a Japanese Tea Garden would be a place to grow the tea leaves, I was totally wrong. I was told it is really just meant to be a spiritual and peaceful place to relax. I think drinking tea may...More

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
