Taishakuten Temple Gardens

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on September 14, 2015

The garden at the Taishakuten really is beautiful. Even on an overcast days as when I visited, muddy pond and drooping leaves and all, it was still gorgeous. As you walk around the garden on the covered and elevated wooden walkways (without your shoes of course!), you’ll discover lots of little alcoves and hidden spots with statues and inscriptions to keep you occupied. I can only imagine the hundreds of years of labor invested in this garden by generations gardeners and architects!

    The fifth image: is that a saru? Indeed, a wonderful place to sit and ponder…

    You often blog about places that I’ve never been to (and therefore add to my ever-increasing list of places to visit!), but I’m pleased to say that I have been here and your photos definitely capture the beauty of it!
