Got to Visit the Japanese tea garden in SF today. It's located in the Golden Gate park, right across the Academy of Sciences. I wish i had taken more photos because the ones i have don't do this place justice. This garden is absolutely beautiful and is a pretty good size as well. I loved walking along the little paths, being surrounded by amazing greenery and flowers, as well as the sculptures and little koi fish filled ponds. You have to plan a visit if you ever find yourself in San Francisco. YOU HAVE TO. I'd go back there in a heart beat. The garden is open daily, and admission is $5 for residents or $7 for non-residents.
On top of it all, you can buy yourself some tea/snacks and sit in a cute little corner overlooking the entrance of the garden. I totally love this type of stuff. We ordered some Edamame and Jasmine tea which were both really good.
