Welcome to the Japanese Tea Garden, the oldest public Japanese garden in the United States located inside Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California.
Very peaceful, beautiful spot. Small but charming. Not sure it's totally worth the money but do it once.
Udon noodles was a nice treat
$6 for sf residents, $8 for nonresidents.
Classic and traditional oriental garden, beautiful and peaceful.
Totally worth it! The garden is extraordinary!
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.
It was smaller than I thought it would be.
Take the time to drink a cup of tea in this beautiful place
Nice garden really well maintained... Highly recommendable for an afternoon walk. Take a lot of photos!
Really nice if you have the chance to check it out
Peaceful, serene, a lovely morning stroll.
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 !
Located inside the Golden Gate Park is the Japanese Tea Garden! The stunning garden will offer you the opportunity to experience harmony and beauty in the heart of San Francisco.
One of the best Japanese Gardens I've been to. Definitely stop by here of you're visiting SF.
You have to try the Jasmen tea 😍
Make sure to get something in the cafe - the iced green tea is perfect.
Wednesdays 9:00-10:00 free admission (free gorgeous tour at 9:30)
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.
Love it! Had a Matcha tea and Edamame, they were divine!
It's really small and expensive compared to the botanical gardens across the street
Skip this spot in favor of the botanical gardens, which are larges, more serene, and less crowded.
Atmosphere. Buddha, koi pond, bridges.

Pretty I guess, but cost $8 to get in...small selection of tea and small snacks.
Expensive ($8) and small, but it's really beautifil. Each corner deserves a picture. Be sure to bring your camera.
The garden is a gorgeous place to walk through.
Zen. There are certain days with free admissions.
There is a small fee for entrance
FREE admission Mon/Wed/Fri before 10am
Beautiful, quiet garden. A wonderful romantic place for a morning walk.
So beautiful and doesn't take long...
Beautiful garden with this cool extra high bridge you have to climb to get on top
Well worth the visit! It's a very relaxing place to go.
Excellent view 👍🍃
Not all features are part of the Original garden. Subsequent additions included a pagoda and Zen garden. This is also one reported site of the introduction of the fortune cookie to America.
This is the oldest public Japanese garden in the US. The garden was designed by Makoto Hagiwara for the 1894 Midwinter Exposition, incl still-standing features such as the Drum Bridge & the tea house.
Check in advance about free entry. It's beautiful. Not the largest Japanese gardens, but peaceful and shady (in a good way). Paths are narrow. I'm not sure that this has reasonable wheelchair access
Had fun exploring this quirky wee garden in the park. Interesting history also. All the fish died when SF changed water supply and regenerating population now that apparently live up to 100 years.
Quite and relaxing. Good for an afternoon walk.
Great place to drink Japanese tea.
Awesome place ;)
Pretty and nice little store inside.
Beautiful and serene garden. Great place to take a walk. The matcha isn't worth it though.
Beautiful and quiet, but crowded on weekends. Go MWF 9-10 am to get free entry!
A small beautiful and peaceful space within the Golden Gate Park. Go in the morning to avoid the noise.
A must to visit beautiful, peaceful & calm as Japanese people Experience the aroma & taste of green tea, Sencha & nuts tarts delightful Dont miss the fun discovering the wisdom in their fortune cookie
Very peaceful here! SF Residents get discounted entry fee
It's very beautiful here. If you're looking to take lots of pictures without tons of people and screaming children in your way, you want to get there right when it opens at 9am.
