Tales of the Orient

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park is one of those mysterious places you’d never expect when looking at it from outside. There’s a Japanese-style gate, but the foliage and fences surrounding the garden completely hide all sign of the magic inside. When you walk into the garden, it’s as if you’ve been transported across the Pacific to Japan. The garden is exquisitely landscaped and manicured, and although it’s a tiny little enclave, it’s easy to get lost in your surroundings and spend hours in there, finding new tiny little details. I took this a couple years ago, but wanted to go ahead and put it up today, since I’ll be heading to the area tomorrow for the photowalk being hosted by Catherine Hall of TWiT Photo fame. Stay tuned!
