“The beautiful and tranquil Japanese Friendship Garden is a walled section of Kelley Park in San Jose. Dedicated in October 1965, it is patterned after Japan's famous Korakuen Garden in Okayama and spans six acres. The Garden is a living symbol of the “Sister City” relationship between Okayama, Japan and San Jose. It's a popular setting for weddings and celebrations, but it best serves San Jose residents as a place to sit and reflect on the beauty and power of nature. ”
