Personally, I didn’t find the Japanese Tea Gardens particularly relaxing. I was being a little sour and not that thrilled to be there, but it was cold and there weren’t any great places to sit and do nothing without being asked if you wanted some Tea. But that doesn’t mean that they’re not a nice place. The natural architecture of the place gives it a very Taoist feeling, and under the great conditions, it could have been a very nice time.
This is in Golden Gate park in San Francisco, California.
