Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park has been on my list for a while. It was pretty close to my school, and I always thought I would make time for it. Alas, when it came down to finishing homework early or visiting the Tea Gardens, I chose finishing my homework early every time. So almost a year after graduation, Hannah wanted to visit, and I finally made it.







If Wikipedia is to be believed, these gardens have a pretty cool history: the 1894 World's Fair, the first fortune cookies, good stuff. But the draw for me has always been the beautiful plants and bridges. We went in the early morning (when it’s free! And less crowded!), and spent about an hour taking it all in. Also taking a billion pictures. I would totally recommend it to a friend.
