Walking the Taishakuten Gardens

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on September 11, 2015

The walled garden at the famous Taishakuten temple in Tokyo is one of my favorites in Japan. To enter you have to take you shoes off and follow the wooden walkways around the garden, there are plenty of hidden spots and little stops you can do to see the garden which seems to change in appearance depending on the angle you view it from.

    Once again, you’ve added something to my to-do list! I never would have known such a lovely spot existed, without your always-excellent photos. Is this garden known for being awesome in any particular season? (Hmm, looks like there are some nice momiji…)
