Japanese Friendship Garden coupons and discounts provide savings for visitors to the San Diego gardens. Coupons for $1 off admission are sometimes issued inside San Diego tourist publications or through the San Diego Convention Center. $1 off admission is available for seniors 65 and over and military personnel with a valid military ID. Students also save $1 off admission, while children under 6 receive free admission. San Diego residents receive free admission on the third Tuesday of each month. Another way to save is by purchasing an annual membership to the garden. Members not only receive unlimited admission for a year, but also receive free or discounted access to over 300 gardens throughout the United States. Members also receive such perks as 10 percent off at the on site gift shop, as well as the Tea Pavilion Restaurant. Memberships are also discounted for seniors, as well as active duty military personnel.
