    It’s a tourist trap. $9 to get in unless your license says San Francisco on it. They don’t accept any other proof.

    The atmosphere of the garden is wonderful. It's relaxing and mellow, take a walk for an hour and look at all the koi and trees. Sip some tea and take some home from the gift shop!

    Nice place to be contemplative. It is a bit small for the $8 entrance fee; but, if you like well-crafted gardens, this one is nice.

    Not worth the ticket. Tiny Japanese garden with a gift shop and a tea & coffee place inside. Ordered a miso soup and Edamame, neither was good. Very disappointing.

    Bring a GoPro with underwater housing and stick it in the water to film the coy fish. Don't think this is allowed but who cares !
