  • If you're in San Mateo or Foster City there can't be a nicer place to take a walk. Lots of moss and pine trees; and I'd love to come back during the cherry blossom season. Easy parking in the nearby garage.
  • I believe the Tea Garden opened in 1973. I love walking through here when there is not a lot of people visiting the garden. It can be calming and tranquil. Has always been well maintained through the years.
  • Absolutely beautiful every time I visit. I love taking my class there to unwind and relax.
  • a bite of Japan in the heart of San Mateo. Feel peace, life and meditate. find yourself.
  • Absolutely beautiful and relaxing. Perfectly calming, not too popular.
