Japanese Tea Garden

San Francisco, California

You’ll swear you’ve departed California for Kyoto upon stepping inside this 5-acre plot within Golden Gate Park, where stone paths, engulfed by native Japanese plants and cherry blossom trees, weave through serene koi ponds, crimson pagodas, a manicured Zen garden and a dramatically arched drum bridge. Once you’ve adequately explored the gorgeous grounds, consider taking in a tea ceremony, where kimono-clad women offer traditional drinks.
