A Japanese Garden in Autumn

Hi there!

Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time no see!! I’m very sorry for this. I’d been very busy for three months to attend the porcelain convention in Thailand. I had been painting 4 pieces for the convention. I also had been painting three pieces for the other competition. That’s why I haven’t updated this blog for a while.

Meanwhile, I went back to my blog again! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Today I want to show some of lovely pictures of a Japanese garden. The garden is called Youkou-kan and the location is in Fukui.

A couple of days ago I went there to  see the fall leaves once more before it becomes winter. 5 months from now I will move out here to another prefecture again because of my husband job. He got a transfer and promotion again. So, this is my last time to see the fall leaves in Fukui.

Enjoy the Japanese fall leaves. The day was very fine and I took some really pretty pictures!

I payed for three US dollars and entered the garden.

This is very famous in Hokuriku area. In winter we have a lot of snow, so to guard some trees, we bind some trees with ropes, and it is called Yuki-tsuri in Japanese.

This is my favorite picture. Look at the reflection. I love Japanese garden because we can enjoy both real scenery and the reflection on the pond at the same time!

The building is for the leasers of Fukui castle in the Edo era. They took their concubines to the building and spent some time together to look at the garden.

Orange colors and blue colors are complimentary colors. So, the orange of the leaves and the blue of the sky were so stunning each other!

    Hi Yumi love your photos. I was only a little disappointed when we went to Japan that cherry blossom time had just finished:( But I loved the gardens we did see.

      Hi, Dafarmer.

      Long time no see! Thank you for visiting my blog again!!! Yep, I have to move out again, but it’s my life. I’m sure we have a lot of beautiful places and after I move out, I can post more beautiful pictures! I don’t like moving out, but I love discovering new places where I haven’t known.

      I hope you can visit Japan again. When you come to Japan, let me know. I want to meet you in person and guide for you!!
