Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco was an amazing place to be. There is also one in Los Angeles in Descanso Garden, but being in San Francisco made it seemed more like Japan than ever. There were beautiful maple leaves, cherry blossoms, and bonsai trees. We also enjoyed Ochazuke which is rice immersed in green tea. Given San Francisco's cold weather, the ochazuke was delicious.
