    Japanese Friendship Garden of San Diego

    The Japanese Friendship Garden is located in Balboa park. San Diego has a sistership with Yokohama and this garden has grown from that Friendship.

    The Garden is an excellent place to break away from the crowd and see what a Japanese garden consists of. It's much more than just Bonsai Trees.

    There is also a Tea House with a small gift shop in the Gardens as well. This is a great place to relax after a hectic day of sightseeing!

    JAPANASE GARDEN
    The Japanese Friendship Garden Society of San Diego has roots in the 1915 World Exposition.
    After the Exposition, strong community interest kept the Japanese Tea Pavilion open for thirty years within Balboa Park, San Diego's Culture Center.
    With the development of San Diego's Sister City relationship with Yokohama in 1950, forty years of gift exchanges followed, kindling feelings of shared ideals represented by the Japanese Garden.
    Private Weddings at the Garden is possible !!!!

    This is a small Japanese style garden in Balboa Park. Its a nice little garden but probably not worth the $3 they want for admission.
