West Coast Love // SF Japanese Tea Garden

Remember the other day when I talked about that proposal we saw? Well, it was here, at the Japanese Tea Garden in SF's Golden Gate Park! Though I had been to Golden Gate Park numerous times, I had never made it into this tea garden until just the other day when Dai brought me here. It was really the sweetest little introduction to what our trip to the real Japan will be like (28 days to go, my friends!) and the perfect afternoon date.

We had the greatest time wandering around every inch of the garden, stopping to take photos or joke around (maybe someone had a little too much fun ;) ). I didn't realize that it was as big as it was; I was expecting something much smaller and was very pleasantly surprised. I loved all of the lush greenery and the colors from the flowers in bloom.
This bridge was so much fun to walk over! It is extremely steep and there are steps kind of like a ladder to get up and down from it. It was a bit scary, but definitely a cool thing to do.
The sakuras are in bloom! They are just so pretty. Wish we could see them when we go to Japan, but they are mostly in the north, somewhere I am told we won't really be visiting. Bummer.
That's our reflection from the top of that steep bridge :)
And there you have it! I am sure you will all get sick of me talking about anything Japanese related by the time May rolls around, but guys, I am so excited for our trip! If Dai and I can have this much fun wandering around a garden that isn't even really in Japan, think about how much fun we are going to have when we actually get there! I'm a lucky girl to have such a great adventuring companion :)
