Many people's favorite part of Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Tea Garden was originally built as part of the sprawling Midwinter Fair. Begun by an Australian in 1894, this intricate and private complex of paths, ponds and a teahouse features native Japanese and Chinese plants. Also hidden throughout its five acres are beautiful sculptures and bridges. Makato Hagiwara, a Japanese gardener whose family took over the garden from 1895 to 1942, also invented the fortune cookie. The garden is located just east of Stow Lake, between JFK and Martin Luther King Jr. drives and is a must see for both tea and nature lovers alike.
