Photo Friday: San Francisco's Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden is a park within a park. It might seem strange to pay an admission fee when the kids can run around Golden Gate Park for free, but trust me, they are totally going to love crossing all the bridges and climbing up to those pavilions.

        I have such fond memories from wandering the Japanese Tea Garden years ago. My husband and I were newly married when we spent several days in San Francisco. I would love to take my children back and get a picture on that same bright red bridge. You are right...the kids would love to climb up those bridges!

        It looks like a lovely place. I love Japanese Gardens, my favourite is the small one in Hong Kong.

        I would have never guessed it was in San Fransisco!
