Japanese Tea Garden

Back in May during my trip to SF Britt, Matt and I headed to Golden Gate Park for a day of fun. First on the list was the Japanese Tea Garden followed by a visit to the California Academy of Science. Next trip we'll have to visit the De Young Museum since we ran out of time.
The  San Francisco Japanese Tea Garden  located in Golden Gate Park is one of the oldest Japanese Gardens in the USA.  The garden sprawls over five acres which has many pathways perfect for strolling. During our visit we came across various ponds, tea house features, and  native Japanese & Chinese plants. Originally the garden was built as part of a sprawling World's Fair, the California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894.  Today it's open to the public for their enjoyment.
