San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden

It was funny that the Chinese Tea Garden gate welcomes visitors to the San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden. After a bit of research, I found why the garden has a funny entrance (You may refer to Wikipedia). As opposed to my low expectation, the garden was enjoyable except the fact it was a bit too big to be a Japanese garden.


Like Moai in Easter Island.

What was impressive was the shallow pond and a lot of big carps in it.


According to Wikipedia, Common carp leave up to 38 years and grow 110 cm long. I wondered how old they are in the pond.


The start of a short trail leads to the zoo.


I met students from a photography class, wondering why all are female. Look at the little lady model in pink.
