Japanese Tea Garden
Welcome to the Japanese Tea Garden, the oldest public Japanese garden in the United States located inside Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California.
We are not accepting any Tea Ceremony reservation after October 1, 2013 until next Spring 2014.
We will resume Tea Ceremony in Spring 2014. Our last session for 2013 is September 27 (Friday) - please check back our website for update.
Experience the rich cultural tradition that celebrates the preparation, serving and drinking of powdered green tea or matcha. Your host, attired in kimono and trained in the omotosenke style of tea ceremony, will demonstrate how to clean special utensils and present the matcha, as well as how to receive and drink tea in keeping with ancient Japanese customs.
