Tuesday we went to the Hayward Japanese Gardens. We had heard they were lovely. The gardens are close to home and free, sounded good to us. The gardens are in the middle of a residential area, originally a high school was there. When it was torn down the Japanese Gardens were born.
I took 85 pictures, don’t worry I am not posting that many. I just want to give a feel of the beauty of this hidden gem. We plan to go on a regular basis to see the seasonal changes.
The red and yellow are leaves showing their Fall colors.
Walking through the garden is so peaceful.
This pool of water had huge Koi, they were well over a foot long.
Lots of little “Tea Houses”. Weddings are held in them often.
Little bridges that reflect over the water.
So calm and peaceful.
We just felt happy walking through the garden.

Even with no leaves (tree on the right) trees have a lovely look. Marty and Hank looking.
More Fall Colors
This is such a hidden gem. If you live anywhere in the Bay Area, well worth the drive.
