The Japanese Tea Garden: A Bay Curious Walking Tour (Second Date Added on Sunday, 6/12)
** Tours for Saturday, June 11 are sold out, but we have added a second date for tours on Sunday, June 12th!**
But what we found when we got there was another story altogether: the garden, which dates back to the World’s Fair of 1893, holds a sprawling family history and is a microcosm for how California has treated Japanese Americans since the 1800s to today. In this walking tour, actress Sango Tajima --aided by Head Gardener Steven Pitsenbarger -- leads us through a theatrical history of the garden, and the people who created it.
