San Antonio: Japanese Tea Garden

One of the perks of living close to downtown is that there are so many lovely spots to walk to!

Even on the greyest of days characteristic of San Antonio’s balmy autumn, a little rain and a LOT of humidity isn’t enough to keep us from the lovely green of Brackenridge Park, and the Japanese Tea Garden.

A happy fragrance greets you as you climb the steps to the stone gazebo. A popular spot for weddings, prom photos, and afternoon strolls such as this one.

It’s as if you have entered a different world, and it’s easy to forget that 281, one of San Antonio’s main roadways, runs directly behind the garden. And from the highest point, you can see the city’s distinct skyline, with the Tower of the Americas floating high above.

The grey stones form a meandering path through greenery and little koi-filled ponds.

I was a fan of this big guy!

Moose enjoyed his little sophisticated stroll, and I imagine the little ones in your life would as well. He floats between loving the attention from the kiddos and experiencing pure terror when being approached to be pet. And there do seem to be quite a few kids climbing the stone steps and admiring the giant fish with giggles of delight.

And if you’re thirsty, pop over to the onsight Tea House, Jingu House for a pot of Jasmine tea!
