Lighting-up autumn leaves in Rikugien garden / Komagome, Bunkyo ward

From 27th November to 13th December, Rikugien garden is opening its gate until 8:30 PM and you can enjoy autumn leaves which are illuminated.
My daughter and I visited there yesterday evening before the supper... and were stunned. It was so beautiful!

You can have Matcha, green tea, and fancy Japanese confectionery with a fine view of the pond in the pond-side tea house.
Set price of Matcha and sweets was 500 yen. I think it was worth it.

The weather was not so cold. That was a very comfortable evening.
Some of Momiji leaves have not turned into crimson. I’d like to try to see them again in December.
Caution: Taking photos with tri-pod is prohibited around the pond. if you want to take a clear night scape without tri-pod, use your buddy's shoulder.
