TOKYO WALKING, KOISHIKAWA-KORAKUEN.

Koishikawa-Korakuen is located at Bunkyo city. It takes about 40 minutes from our house by subway.



Koishikawa-Korakuen. I took this photo from a Civic Center of Bunkyo city.



The Civic Center. I was at 25th floor of this building.


We can see this kind of view from the building.


There was a wax tree on the way to the garden.


We enjoyed the views in the garden.


Japanese maple tree.


There is a pond in this garden.



The reflection.


A stone Bridge.


I found a king fisher near the bridge, but I did not have a telephoto lens.


A honey locust tree.



The seeds of the tree.


Going out of the garden,I went to Hijiri-bridge near JR Otyanomizu railroad station.
Hijiri means Saint. So it means saint bridge.


The view from Saint Bridge.
 We can see one subway line from the tunnel and two JR Lines just stopping the station.


There is St.Nicholas church which is located right side of the bridge.


There is a Temple of Confucius,located left side of the bridge.
So the bridge is called Saint Bridge.


There is a crossroads where traffic lights allow pedestrians to cross in any direction simultaneously.

It's a symbol of Tokyo.

  11. 東京はコンクリートジャングルの大都会なのに緑がおおいと毎回思います。上からの眺めの彩が綺麗ですね。石の太鼓橋も素敵。スクランブル交差点、奈良にはないですね。小規模ですが、神戸元町の中華街近くの大丸前にはあります。

      こんばんは。多くは大名の上屋敷や下屋敷が、庭園になってます。スクランブル交差点は日本の象徴ですね。
