A METROPOLITAN GARDEN IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD.

The garden named Rikugien is located 6 or 7 minutes by walking from our house.



You can see small rocks in this pond.



If  you will walk 50 meters from this area,




You will find the different expression of the rocks.



There is a Hunaya house.  There is a tortoise on a rock.



The same kind of the one.



A bridge.



There are water dividing stones.



Looking from a small tea room,the scene looks like a painting 




This bridge is surrounded with maple trees.





I took this photo very nice area to take photos in this garden.




A Isunoki tree.





Many galls from the tree.


There are some flowers in this garden.



A Cluster amaryllis.




A Japanese toad lily.



A Japanese bush clover.




From our top house, we can see the garden and Tokyo Skytree too.



We can see a full moon tomorrow.


I took this photo last  October in a full moon night.



Thanks for visiting this post.

  3. 徒歩圏内にこんな素敵な公園があるなんてうらやましい。ネットで調べると、年間パスが1200円ですね。私ならそのパスを購入して頻繁に散歩にでかけるでしょう。お宅からは歴史深い景観と最先端の技術がみえるわけですね。我が家の萩の花も咲いています。壺にいれなくても明日の満月のいいお供えになりそうです。

      こんばんは。 もう何年も年間パスを使っていましたが、去年からやめてしまいました。今日の満月は素晴らしかったです。 大和郡山城の城主、柳沢吉保は大和守と言われていました。 それにちなんで、私たちの地区は、大和郷という通称で呼ばれています。
       奈良とは関係が深いのです。

  5. How lucky to live so close to this beautiful green space. Japanese gardens are always so well-thought-out. Even neutral space is lovely. Do I see a heart shape in one of those galls?

  11. I like the tranquil scene from the tea room. In a big city it must be very pleasant to have such a beautiful park close by. Thank you for sharing this.

  13. こんばんわ。六義園ですね。離宮園と間違いました。ちょっと違うなあと思いながら見ていました。スミマセン。
    前のコメント完全に消去してください。橋の上に見えるのはカップルでしょうか、素敵なショットです。四季折々の花が咲くのですね。見事な満月です!

      こんばんは。 カップルかどうか分かりませんが、私の写真を撮った場所が、この庭園をとても綺麗に写せると言われている所です。 人を写さないと、池の大きさが伝わらないので、敢えていれました。
       今日の月は数時間だけ見えましたが、とても綺麗でした。

  17. お久しぶりです。 日本ではお会い出来ずに残念でした。 台風の影響などで、時間切れになってしまいました。 9月は台風が多いんですかねえ、、、。少し怖かったです。
    今晩主人と共に、満月を見に行きました。赤い色が大変きれいでした。Eclipse と関連したSuper moon は次回は32年待たないといけないとかで、孫たちがアラフォーになっていると考えると驚きの数字です。
    この公園は前から行ってみたいと思っています。なかなか機会が訪れませんが、斎藤さんは絶好地にお家を持っていらしゃるんですね。 散歩がてらに行けるなんてすばらしいことです。 花々の写真もすてきです。

      おはようございます。 日本は満月だけでしたが、月食も世界各地で見えたそうですね。 次回来日の時はお声をかけてください。 我が家の4階は二部屋あいています。鍵もかかります。何日泊まられても無料です。

  25. What a lovely garden with a nice lake in your neighbourhood! It is a perfect place for the young and old to relax and stroll. I wonder if the tortoise is a real thing or just a fake show piece?
