The lowest point in San Jose is 13 feet 4. San Jose lies close to the Pacific Ocean and close to San Francisco Bay a small portion of its northern border touches the bay.
Santa Clara Valley is the population center of the Bay Area and, like the hub and spokes of a wheel, surrounding communities emanate outwards from the valley. This growth, in part, has shaped the greater Bay Area as it is today in terms of geographic population distribution and the trend of suburbanization away from the valley.
There are four distinct valleys in the city of San Jose: Almaden Valley, situated on the southwest fringe of the city; Evergreen Valley to the southeast, which is hilly all throughout its interior; Santa Clara Valley, which includes the flat, main urban expanse of the South Bay; and the rural Coyote Valley, to the city's extreme southern fringe.

Blame for this lack of architectural "beauty" can be assigned to the re-development of the downtown area from the s onward, in which whole blocks of historic commercial and residential structures were demolished.
Municipal building projects have experimented more with architectural styles than have most private enterprises. San Jose has many examples of houses with fine architecture. Public art is an evolving attraction in the city. There are a considerable number of public art projects throughout the downtown area, and a growing collection in the newer civic locations in neighborhoods including libraries, parks, and fire stations.
Of particular note, the Mineta Airport expansion is incorporating a program of art and technology into its development. Within the early efforts at public art, there are notable controversies.
Two examples include the statue of Quetzalcoatl the plumed serpent in downtown which was controversial in its planning because some religious groups felt that it was pagan, and controversial in its implementation because many felt that the final statue by Robert Graham did not closely resemble a winged serpent, and was more noted for its expense than its aesthetics. This has resulted in locals joking that the statue resembles a pile of feces.
The planned installation of a statue of Thomas Fallon also met strong resistance from those who felt that he was largely responsible for the decimation of early native populations. In October after protests in part of Columbus Day and Dia de la Raza celebrations, the Fallon statue plan was scrapped and the statue was stored in a warehouse in Oakland for more than a decade.
The statue was returned to public display in , albeit in a less conspicuous location: In , the city sponsored SharkByte, an exhibit of decorated sharks , based on the mascot of the hockey team, the San Jose Sharks, and modeled after Chicago's display of decorated cows. Many displays were removed early because of vandalism. After the exhibition, the sharks were auctioned off and the proceeds donated to charity.
The sharks can still be found in their new owners' homes and businesses. In , Adobe Systems commissioned an art installation titled San Jose Semaphore by Ben Rubin,  which is located at the top of its headquarters building.

My email requesting communication was never returned. We will never return. Thank you for sharing your feedback, Zorby. We are glad that you were able to connect with one of our managers by phone to voice your concerns. We have had several complaints about the front desk staff who was on duty when you visited, and have since removed her from staff rotation.
We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your experience, and hope you give Kiva another visit in future. As a community healing space, we feel it is important that massage therapists be allowed to keep spiritual items in their space, whether they be Buddha statues, Christian images, or religious texts of any kind.
Our front desk staff will be happy to guide you towards a massage therapist with spiritual practices compatible with your own beliefs when you make an appointment.
I've been to Kiva twice. I'm not from the area, i was visiting from Alaska. The first time I went I opted for the clothing optional, community space. I loved the sauna and the smell of hot cedar was hypnotic. I also enjoyed the hot tub and cold tubs.
I opted to wear a swimsuit but many other people were feeling the freedom of nudity and no one made me feel at all uncomfortable. The second time I chose a private hot tub. A choice I did not regret. River, the owner is warm and welcoming and made me some delicious tea for my soak. He adjusted the music so it was just right and gave me a little run through on how to work everything.
Then I was left in peace and quiet to soak for as long as I liked. I got to sit and enjoy watching the moon and stars come out slowly and planes and satellites float across the sky. Very romantic and inexpensive thing to do for couples. Or maybe a ladies night! The price was reasonable and the facility was clean. The other review before mine said there was someone doing drugs and they felt their valuables were at risk.
I feel that review is unfair and untruthful. I felt safe and did not worry about leaving my things in the car. I am definitely going back. Have a good soak! We were on vacation and decided to get massages during our stay. The website is so NOT what you experience. As we parked a girl was in her car next to us and was lighting up a glass pipe which we surmised was a "crack pipe" due the omission of any smells coming from the car.
We wanted to leave our valubles locked in the car but under these circumstances even leaving the car didn't seem safe! We called the front desk and a woman came out and proceeded to tell us that she would charge us full price if we didn't come in I've been to Kiva three times. The first two times I was with a group of friends, mixed gender, and it was great. It's small but the facilities are really nice, the staff is helpful but onobtrusive. Very fun and relaxing. The last time I went with my boyfriend who, because of our last experience here is still not convinced about the whole clothing optional thing.
This place has been "guyed. There's always at least one in a given space, and there certainly were a couple the first two times I went, but being in a group made it much less of a problem. It was extremely uncomfortable for both of us, I have never felt so uncomfortable in a clothing optional space.
