Japanese Tea Garden of San Francisco

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco, California, is par of Golden Gate Park, and was originally built as part of1894 World's Fair. After the conclusion of the World's Fair, Makoto Hagiwara, a Japanese immigrant and gardener, approached the superintendent of the Golden Gate Park with the idea to convert the temporary exhibit into a permanent park. Hagiwara oversaw building of the Japanese Tea Garden and was the caretaker from 1895 to 1925 (his death). The Hagiwara family lived in and maintained the garden until 1942, when World War Two forced them to leave San Francisco and relocate to an internment camp.
