Great landscape any time of year
This garden with its Chinese-inspired bridges and landscapes is about 400 years old, dating from the shogun period. In the spring, it has spectacular wisteria, azalea, and other lovely flowers. What’s so fascinating and educational about the garden is the greenhouse with exotic plants, and the soaring mature trees. Usually the only time I can get away to this garden is in Golden Week. The fresh green of the foliage is a wonderful relief from the concrete and glass of the city. Looking over the ponds under the leaf laden trees is so relaxing.
