Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco
The tea garden is situated in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
This garden is the oldest Japanese-style garden in the United States and was part of a Japanese Village exhibit for the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition in San Francisco.
The garden - five acres - contains a high drum bridge, a five-story red pagoda, a dry landscape garden, ponds, a teahouse, a large bronze Buddha and stone lanterns and other fixtures.
Designed by Baron Hagiwara Makoto, a Japanese landscape designer who lived here from 1895 until his death in 1925. His family continued in his footsteps until 1942.
