Japanese Friendship Garden Reviews
Well maintained, I took my parents there, when they visited US, they liked it. It gives a different look, very peaceful place. more »
I decided to do the Explorer Pass for my day at Balboa Park which cost $48 and included five museums/exhibits. I chose the Japanese Friendship Garden as one of my “museums.” It’s the only garden that cost money to see but it’s really so beautiful! If I was a local, I would probably go there every day just to sit and be at one with nature. It was pretty quiet when I visited so it’s definitely a nice spot to relax and also take nice photographs without anyone getting in your shot. It’s such a peaceful place with great energy and beautiful greenery.
Right in the middle of San Jose, at Kelly Park is another world, The Japanese Friendship Garden. This is a place of peace & beauty. Here you can commune with nature. I bring all of my grandchildren here. Once through is not enough. We bring a lunch, feed the Koy then navigate all the many paths, climb all the rocks, sit on all the benches & cross all the bridges a second time before we can leave.
