I feel like I’ve talked about the Japanese Tea Garden at Golden Gate Park in my other posts, so without further ado, here are three more photos of one of my favorite spots in the City by the Bay.

What about you?  Do you have a favorite photo below?

Japanese Tea Garden Photo #3.  Highly arched drum bridges, or moon bridges, were originally designed to allow pedestrians to cross over canals while barges glided underneath.  In the Japanese Tea Garden, the Moon Bridge arches over calm waters, its steep design forcing visitors to slow down and take in the peaceful views.
