Japanese Friendship Garden is a beautiful garden . Our family likes to go here to see the koi fish in the three ponds and really like to feed the fish. Our kids can spend so much time feed their one favorite fish,

If you are sight seeing in San Jose, do not miss out on this little gem. It is absolutely beautiful! There are plenty of benches to sit down, there are amazing khoi in the ponds, trees and rocks and just nature. Great place to take your children to so they can feed the khoi and run around, or to take your s/o on a romantic date, or even to sit down and eat lunch at.

A very nice place to take a walk and a good place to take a date or just spend a quiet day. All the plants and trees are well kept, and there are plenty of places where you can stop to take a rest if you're tired from walking. Koi pond is well maintained and brimming with fish. Sometimes a little crowded, but it's nice enough that I've seen people getting married there before.

This is a beautiful Japanese garden that was modeled after the world famous Karakuen Garden in Okayama. The garden has 3 very large ponds that have a lot of koi fish in them. The fish can be fed with food from the dispensers located in the garden. My kids have a blast doing this and watching all the fishes scrambling to eat.

If you are into Japanese styled gardens, this is definetely the place to go. Beautiful gardens with ponds and koi, nice and lush greens located everywhere. This is definetely one of the places to be if you want to enjoy yourself and have a quiet time to look at the scenery.

The Japanese Friendship Garden is really a beautiful garden. It is located in a very convenient location. The landscape is really amazing. The tree, the river, the bridge, everything inside is beautiful. I've been here many times and really enjoy. it. You can easily relax and have a peace mind here. I will highly recommend this place.

You have to remember your camera when you visit - it's absolutely beautiful. You would never think that there was such a beautiful garden so close to downtown San Jose and the freeway. Whoever designed the garden did a great job. It's so pretty and very peaceful. Great place to sit and contemplate.

this is a little known garden within Kelley Park. It's absolutely beautiful. A very relaxing place to sit and watch the koi (which are giant sized). This would be a romantic place to go on a date, and yet also a good place to take kids (makes a change from fast paced amusement parks). there's something about watching fish that makes you sigh and relax.

The Japanese Friendship Garden is located within Kelly Park, easy to reach from 280 with its own parking lot (they do charge a fee at times). The setting of this garden is beautiful with unique trees, small lakes, rivers, bridges, koy and ducks. The landscaping is beautiful. The gardeners do such a wonderful job keeping this garden clean and perfect looking at all times. Don't forget to bring you camera.

The garden is a great for pictures on a sunny day. It is also a good place to take a date, family, and friends from out of town. There are lots of different kinds of plants and flowers along with a great koi pond. Anyone that comes in has a better mood when they come out.

I have visited here many times with my friend. just the right kind of place where u can have a peace of mind. Also a good place to go on a date. The landscaping is almost perfect and makes you feel good. One of the best places you can find in a busy city and the serenity is what makes it perfect.

This place is simply beautiful. The gardens are great, the landscaping is great, the atompshere is great, the people are great. There are also a lot of tourists and photographers.

I really enjoy looking at the fish at the garden. It also makes a great date place because of the atmosphere. The scenery is especially great in the summer.

The gardens are something you should definitely check out if you are in San Jose.
