The Tea Pravilion near the entrance to the Japanese Friendship Garden offers a wide range of delicious loose leaf teas for a spot of rest.  _balboa6 This symbol of our friendship with Japan was built in 1915 during the Exposition.

Yokohama is our sister city in Japan.   Our garden is called San Kei En meaning water, pastoral and mountain.  Our garden honors our ties with the San Kei En garden located in Yokohama.  This plaque, located near the tea pravilion entrance, remembers our friendship with a song.
