One Thing, Three Ways: Japanese Tea Garden
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 #1. Oh, how I wished my back yard looked like this!
Japanese Tea Garden Photo #2. This large, bronze statue of Buddha was cast in Japan in 1790 and added to the Japanese Tea Garden in 1949.
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.
On Today’s Date in the Past:
I could stare at the first photo forever!! It’s very calming after an extremely stressful week.
Aw, that makes me happy! I mean that the photo is calming, not that you had a stressful week.
Is it just me or is that the sweetest bridge ever!
I know I love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
