Sip Tea in a Traditional Japanese Tea Garden

You'd think that after all the time I've spent in Japan, I would have had many opportunities to accomplish this particular task.  But this one Kumiko and I actually did in the United States - in San Francisco, to be more specific.

It was interesting - even if it was a bit overcrowded and touristy.  And Kumiko told me that it wasn't really like the tea gardens in Japan.  For example, she's never seen a bridge like the one shown below.  Oh well, chalk up another mistake to the American tourist trade.
