Autumn leaves in the Japanese gardens
It was clear but windy day on Sunday. Because I didn’t want to miss seeing autumn leaves, today I went out two of Japanese gardens in Tokyo : Kiyosumi garden and Rikugien garden. Although there were few colored trees in the Kiyosumi garden, a Japanese maple tree near the entrance was at its best and people were attracted by its orange color. Birds were resting in the pound peacefully.
In Rikugien garden, many people had their smartphones in their hands and were trying to capture the best shot of the red and orange scene. Especially around the the Tsutsuji Chaya and the Sanin bride area were crowded, which were both close to the Someimon entrance.
This garden is known as the place where you can enjoy illumination at night, too. When I left there around half past 4 pm, many people were already waiting for the night ticket. Well, it might be a little difficult to judge when to visit gardens as maple trees turn red and fall quickly than we expect. I was lucky enough to catch up almost last few days of autumn leaves.
