Japanese Friendship Garden of San Diego

Restore your body and soul contemplating the Zen stone garden and seeking restoration at the koi pond at the Japanese Friendship Garden of San Diego.  As with many of Balboa Park’s most distinctive features, the Japanese Friendship Garden traces its origins to the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. A Japanese Tea Pavilion was built for the expo, and strong community interest kept it open for thirty years after the fair ended.

Hours: Tuesday–Sunday 10:00 am–4:00 pm.
Closed: Mondays. May be closed major U.S. holidays.

Directions: From 15N/163 N: 163 S to Exit 5 South/Park Blvd and turn left. Turn left on President’s Way, and right onto the second driveway into the Organ Pavilion Parking lot.

From I-5 S: Exit 6th Avenue and turn right on El Prado. El Prado leads into Balboa Park towards the fountain.

From I-5 N: Exit 10 St and turn left on A street, left on Park Blvd., then left on President’s Way. The Organ pavilion parking lot is on the right. The Japanese Friendship Garden is adjacent to the Organ Pavilion.
