Hi, it's Lee.

Shidare-zakura / weeping cherry trees at the Rikugien garden, Komagome, part 2

Let Shige introduce the outline of the Rikugien garden.

Originally, the Rikugien garden was constructed by Yoshiyasu Yanagisawa in the 17 century. He was on the top of the cabinet member of the Tokugawa government and had a big power. Now the Tokyo metropolitan government owns this garden and opens it to the public.
Regular opening hour is 9:00 to 17:00, but at the Sakura season, it's open till late.
The closest station is "Komagome" of subway Namboku line or JR Yamanote line. It's a quite big park, so you wouldn't miss it.
I introduced you the night scene, but the daytime view is also great. You can enjoy various aspects at each season.
Uh,,, I'm sorry to say that dogs are not permitted to enter, anyway.


Sis seems to have found something. Hmm, there is a good smell.

Oh, the incense of the Sakura!

Wow, how gorgeous it is!
