The Japanese Gardens of San Jose are located in Kelly Park on Senter Road. It is designed after the Korakuen Gardens in Okayama. The gardens are a part of Kelly Park, which also includes the Happy Hollow Zoo and the San Jose Historical Park.

My favorite thing about the park is the large number of koi. It is a very lovely and soothing place to visit. A tea house is open during peak times of the year.
