San Jose's "sister city" is Okayama, Japan, and the Japanese Friendship Garden is a symbol of that partnership. It is modeled after Korakuen Park in Okayama. This garden is a great place to go to sit on a quiet afternoon and collect your thoughts. The garden is located in between the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, and History San Jose. Koi fish have recently been returned to the park, and feeding them is a fun family activity. Make sure you bring quarters with you to purchase fish food. The different fountains and bridges are the more popular things to see while visiting. Admission to the garden is free.
