Those photos are from Djamel and Lydie san!
They seems really enjoyed exploreing in this garden :)
Koishikawa Korakuen is one of Tokyo's oldest and most beautiful Japanese landscape gardens.
It was built by close relatives of the Tokugawa Shogun in the early Edo Period.
Like most traditional Japanese gardens, Koishikawa Korakuen attempts to reproduce famous
landscapes from China and Japan in miniature, using a pond, stones, plants and a man made hill.
Koishikawa Korakuen is attractive during all seasons of the year,
but particularly so in the second half of November, when the fall colors appear,
during the plum festival in late February
and when the beautiful weeping cherry tree near the garden's entrance is in full bloom.
Hours: 9:00 to 17:00 (entry until 16:30)
Closed: December 29 to January 1
Admission: 300 yen
This is gate for the garden :)
Let's get going!
We can see there is freshly air and landscape greenly.
The bridge colored red and...is that Lydie san?
The carps swimming peacefully:)
Weather forecast saying that you can see autumn color in Tokyo soon,
so why don't you planning to go to garden during your stay
and take some rest there?
