SPRING HAS COME IN TOKYO.

I went to a metropolitan garden named Koisukawa-Korakuen in Bunkyo city.

                            小石川後楽園に行きました。

There are many flowers in this garden.

  1. And a beautiful Spring it is Minoru. I love botanical gardens -- and that bridge is perfect. We have visited several Japanese gardens here in the States and they are some of our favorite places. (I wish I were able to visit some in your country!) Thank you for sharing.

  9. すっかり春めいてきましたね。お花どれも可憐に撮れています。オオイヌノフグリやハコベも負けていませんね。本当にかわいらしい。庭に生えると抜かざるを得ないのですが、私も好きです。

  12. 都内のゆったりとした公園がお住まい近くで羨ましい!
    そろそろ可愛い花が顔をのぞかせてくれているんだろうなぁと思いながら、
    家族も私も花粉症で、週末もあいかわらず 近場(元町中華街あたり)をうろうろしているだけです。
    春の花だより ありがとうございます。  皆、それぞれ可愛いですね。

  13. こんにちは
    この庭園は私も好きで、よく行きますが、春夏秋冬で木立や花の景色ががらりと変わり、飽きさせませんね。
    小さな山野草が、沢山咲く時期になり、いよいよ貴兄の出番!! いつも拝見してるばかりですが、
    スズメノエンドウやアセビは気づかずに通り過ぎてしまうので、次回からは注意深く、探しながら歩こうと思います。

       こんばんは。そうですね。もうすぐ都立庭園の入園料が半額になるので、楽しみにしています。そろそろ、自然教育園や小石川植物園の平らな所に山野草が生えてくる季節です。

  14. 花たちがとってもかわいい!ポートランドでもすっかり春模様です。この公園は行ったことないですけど、すてきですね。 では私のバケットリストにメモしておきます。いつになるかわからないですけど、夢が膨らみます。

    バンジージャンプしたことがあるんですか?

      こんばんは。小石川後楽園、六義園、旧古河庭園と都立庭園が3つありますが、車でしたら、30分の距離です。六義園と旧古河庭園はあるいても30分かからない距離です。バンジージャンプは5年くらい前に、N.Z.
      のバンジージャンプの発祥地で飛びました。このジャンプの話題が出た時に、経験ありと答えたら、証拠を見せろというリクエストが有りましたので、載せました。バンジージャンプは楽しかったですが、宙ずり状態で、前後に揺れていたのが、怖かったです。

  17. バレンタインの大雪以来1ヶ月ほどの冬眠から目覚め、ゆるゆるとブログ開始しました。こちらでも1月初めには真っ赤な実がたわわだったサンシュが黄色い花に変わりました。私も春の花を求めてカメラを持ってでかけたくなりました。東京周辺は圧倒的にいい公園や庭園が多いですね。

      こんばんは。元武士の屋敷が、都立庭園になっている場合が多いです。東京大学も元加賀100米の前田家の屋敷跡です。

  30. 白い馬酔木は奈良公園でも、よく見ますが、ピンクの馬酔木は知らなかったのですが、かわいいですね。オオイヌフグリ等、見ると春の日溜まりを、思い出して、暖かくなります。
