    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.

    Stunning! Lovely and calm! Well worth the $8 entry.

    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.

    Really beautiful Japanese garden. The tea house is really cute, but the line is HUGE.

    Small but nice garden. The Tea house was the same and allowed you to sit and relax while enjoying the view.

    Try to go on a weekday so it's not so crowded. Hard to really find peace with a billion people posing for pics everywhere.

    Very peaceful, beautiful spot. Small but charming. Not sure it's totally worth the money but do it once.

    This is a gem in the heart of SF. Come here for a Zen walk around the garden and end your trip with some authentic jasmine tea prepared with perfection. Light lunch options are also served here.

    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 !

    One of the worst people I have ever met. Just walking up to the counter he had the worst attitude. And when I asked him why he was being so inappropriate, his attitude doubled ten fold.

    Skip this spot in favor of the botanical gardens, which are larges, more serene, and less crowded.
