View of Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive through the Japanese Tea Garden Main Gate.

Main Gate and Monterey Pine.

The smaller, much twisted pine just inside the Main Gate is a Monterey pine. It was brought from Golden Gate Park's ocean front as a young tree by Makoto Hagiwara who planted it at its present location around 1900. Through the portal of the Main Gate can be viewed the columns of the Music Concourse, original site of the California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894 where the idea of the Japanese Tea Garden originated.
