One of the most lovely Japanese garden, Youkoukan

Lately I don’t have much time to learn English via the Internet because I have 2 foreign guests from America.  I’m busy treating them. However, I’ve been learning English from them even though I can’t watch movies and read books in English. I’ve been learning natural conversations from them. It’s really cool.

 Today I want to share my region’s historical place with you. The place is famous as a Japanese garden. It is top of three in Japanese scenery. Therefore, when my foreign friends come to my house, I really want to take them there. I can tell you that all of them love the place.

I posted two video clips about “Youkouen”. It is a very pretty Japanese garden in Fukui. In Edo era, a building in the clip was built by the Matsudaira family who had reigned in the Fukui region. The building was their second house. Therefore, we can look at some very gorgeous parts in the house. However, unfortunately, the building was burned out during World War 2. After the war, it was rebuilt. Therefore, the building is replica of original one. Both the garden and the house are very lovely, so I’m sure that you can enjoy the video clips.
