My blogger friend and her family came to Japan from Malaysia.. We invited them for supper in our house.


We went to a metropolitan garden very near from our house.


We enjoyed the night scene in this garden.

I hope she will get a prize at the marathon.

  10. 新宿御苑は都会のオアシスですね。薔薇がまださいているということはまだ東京でも霜が降りてないんでしょうか。手向け山という紅葉初めてです。ブログフレンドとの交友も活発なようですね。お宅に招待してあげるなど、奥様のご協力は相当なもの。素敵な方ですね。どこかのブログで、栗の皮をむかない・・とこぼしておられましたが、そんなの些細なことです。^0^/

      こんばんは。霜の降りるのは、真冬に数回あるだけです。Yoko様の御主人はお料理をお手伝いするそうですね。あれは事実を書いただけです。
       彼らは来日9回目、だいの和食好きです。 それでも妻は大変だったようです。

  13. Thank you for this beautiful walk through a Japanese Garden in Tokyo! These wonderful colors... Here it is grey now and the nearest Japanese Garden (in the Gardens of the world in Berlin) is closed now until springtime... Looking at your pics I remember the Japanese Garden in Buenos Aires I visited 10 years ago. I had a good time there...

  27. なんだか、いつも’へえー’ の声をあげてしまいます。これもそうです。花々の写真が可憐で、うまく撮れてます。東京lのど真ん中にあっていいスポットですねえ。十月桜が、孤独さがあるけれど、美しい。まだ紅葉もあって得した気分になりませんか? 斎藤さん宅の近くにあるという六義園、いつか散歩したいです、、、夜の景色も素晴らしい。

      こんばんは。紅葉と桜と両方見られてとても得した気分です。六義園は柳沢吉保の屋敷あとです。
      今度、東京にいらした節には、六義園と夕食に招待いたします。 是非いらして下さい。

  28. 緑の多い日本庭園をもつ公園に気軽に行けていいですね。タムケヤマは、見事ですね。葉がハゴロモに似てます。庭のハゴロモは、今日の寒さと強風で、ほとんど散ってしまいました。インドネシアからのお友達、きっとお喜びでしょう。マラソン、がんばられた事でしょう。
    Have a nice day!

      こんにちは。タムケヤマは見頃を迎えていると、案内に出てました。多くの人が集まっていて、人の途切れた時に撮影しました。
       ハゴロモを検索して見ました。 タムケヤマに良く似ていますね。
       マレーシアから、来られた彼女はいつか、東京マラソンに出たいと言ってました。

  31. プラタナスのローアングルの写真素敵です! 東京に緑が多く、紅葉のスポットも沢山あることって案外世界で知られていないのでは?沢山東京のポストして下さいね。なんと魅力的な美しい奥様!!
    実家東京なんです。結婚するまで赤坂と祖師谷大蔵で過ごしました。新宿と聞くとピンピンと反応します。

    同居してる義理母に手がかかるようになってますので、しばらくブログお休みしています。また時間のある時訪問させて頂きますね!

       こんばんは。東京のご出身ですか。私は新宿区に生まれ、人生のほぼ100%、東京で過ごしています。
       プラタナスの写真、気が付いていただき光栄です。 色々撮ってみましたが、ピンと来ないので低い角度から撮りました。
       お母様の介護ですか、大変ですね。私も両親を介護しました。 訪問して下さると嬉しいです。

  32. こんばんは。新宿御苑は春に娘宅を訪ねた帰り寄りました。その広さ、桜の見事さ、木々の美しさ、庭園の落ち着き・・・どれもが素晴らしいなと思いました。秋も魅力が一杯ですね。また訪れてみたいです。自宅に外国の方をお招きするのは、奥様の力が大きいですね。私ももっと料理が上手ならいいのですが。素敵なご夫婦ですね。

  33. The colourful trees in Autumn is always lovely and your photos look like nice paintings.
    It was so nice and kind of you to host a dinner for Lina and her family in Tokyo. I am sure they
    had a good and memorable time. Come visit Kuala Lumpur and we will pamper you too!
