Fodor's Expert Review Japanese Friendship Garden

Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo Garden Fodor's Choice

A koi pond with a cascading waterfall, a cherry tree grove, and the serene Inamori tea pavilion are highlights of the park's authentic Japanese garden, designed to inspire contemplation and evoke tranquility. You can wander the various peaceful paths spread over 12 acres, and meditate in the traditional stone and Zen garden. The garden is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm but note the final admission ends at 5 pm.
