Rikugien Garden

Rikugien Garden in Tokyo

A morning walk in the wonderfully beautiful and quiet Rikugien garden from the Edo period. The park is absolutely beautiful and peaceful, it contains many varied landscapes around the central pond, including a hill and an hidden tea house in the forest. Many markers along the walk are supposed to illustrate ancient poems. Only a few markers remain to this day. It was built in 1702. In the Meiji Period, this garden became a second residence of the founder of Mitsubishi and later was given to the city of Tokyo.

Having matcha tea and sweet in the tea house by the pond was a serene experience.

The series ends with a few pictures of the gardeners taking good care of this place.
