San Francisco in San Francisco City and County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Japanese Tea Garden Gates
The reconstruction of the Japanese Tea Garden gates was the result of efforts by San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein and Mayor Yasushi Oshima of our sister city, Osaka, Japan. The gates were designed by Ohbayashi Corporation while the traditional decorative features were executed by temple architect Kensuki Kawata. The gates stand on the site of the original ones built for the 1894 California Midwinter International Exposition and the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition of 1915. The project, under the direction of the San Francisco Art Commission, was completed on September 3, 1985.
