  • Japan saw a lot of people in the Japanese garden is frustrated but it is a new place where you can feel in the United States. Once such a place to recommend.

  • A gem of a surprise in this area and a mellow place to re-center yourself. Worth a visit if you enjoy nature, gardens, Japanese style of culture and can quiet the Monkey Mind.  more »

  • Wanna Get Away? Great location for meditation. Tea room is available. Paths, rock creek, scenic bridge. This beautiful Japanese garden can take you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the big city and only minutes away from Downtown. Located in Van Nuys. Get out and take a walk, clear your mind and enjoy the tea. Hours varies due to seasons and events. Call ahead. Open to events and filming.
  • Beautiful place to walk around and look as Japanese inspired gardening and architecture. When I go it's always quiet and relaxing. Yes it might smell like sewage because of the water treatment plant next to it, but worth the price to get in. They do have a tea House in the very back as well
  • This is maybe the best five bucks you can spend in L A. A great leisurely walk, photo worthy scenery. Ducks and geese going about their day. A nice tea house. I didn't have a chance to visit the gift shop; they close at 3:15 pm, so go early. Very interesting water reclamation site for science geeks too.
  • The place is ok. Very common Asian Pacific plants and trees, so nothing different, lots of mosquitoes, water is recycled with low power pumps and it does smells like a sewage but many people say is the water plant next to it. Eitherway, it's only $5 to get in, no food or drinks are allowed(I think water might be OK). If you never been to there, you should check it out. I would still recommend it, you will like it. btw, startrek academy was filmed there. :)
  • This place is so beautiful. I can't wait to go again 😍😍
