  5. What a great place to wander, Minoru. That pink flower looks like a little woodland orchid I see here in the spring. Your butterfly shots are wonderful. I always have trouble getting a good shot of them as they fan their wings too much!

      Thank you very much for your comment. This flower is named Touch-me-not. Perhaps,it's different from the orchid.

  9. Imagine this "wilderness" in the heart of bustling metropolitan Tokyo? How incredible is that. Kudos to the city planner.

  13. 植物や虫の写真が興味深いです。名前を聞くのも勉強になります。Japanese tea flower はお茶にもなるんですか? ツリフネソウの名前の由来は、なるほどねえと感心します。こんな風に情緒のある名前だといいのですけど、以前にこのブログで拝見した、可愛い花にひどい名前がついていて、つけた人に意見をしたくなりました。 
    秋も深まって、茜色に染まった空の下、この木道を歩いてみたいです。

      おはようございます。 ありがとうございます。 日本茶の花ですから、丹念に手入れをすれば、美味しいお茶の葉が収穫されると思います。
       ここは、港区、以前の白金長者の屋敷跡だそうです。
       用事のあった時についでに行くと心地よい散歩が出来ます。

  27. Konnichi-wa Minoru-san!

    As you already know I already was two times in Tokyo - but unfortunately I never visited this institute of nature study. I've been two times to Yoyogi park close to Shibuya-ku - but this park is surely different from the one in your post.

    Enjoy a (hopefully) great month of November!
    All the best from Germany, Uwe.

  28. This is amazing to know there is a huge garden in the central of Tokyo that has abundance of flora and fauna besides a swamp and pond. This sounds like those Botanical Gardens in London.
    The butterflies are so colourful and calm to allow you snap their photos. It is now November and the Autumn leaves are not showing yellow and red yet. I thought Autumn will be over soon and I will be there next week! I am so excited.
