|Explore the lush manicured landscapes, winding pathways, ancient lanterns, tranquil waterfall and Koi Pond of the Japanese Friendship Garden. The Garden is the perfect balance of Zen and style along with a spectacular location to make your event truly unforgettable.
Originally built for the 1915 Exposition, the reconstructed Japanese Friendship Garden boasts a tea pavilion, koi-filled pond with waterfall, traditional sand and stone garden and a wisteria arbor (fujidana) viewing area overlooking the canyon below.
Japanese garden concepts and symbolism have been adapted to the climate and topography of San Diego, making for a serene place of contemplation for visitors.
The original Japanese garden was built for the 1915 Exposition at the site of what is now the Children's Zoo. The current location next to the Spreckels Organ Pavilion was dedicated in 1990.
