Autunum leaves at Rikugien

I went to Rikugien to enjoy autumn colors. The dark in Rikugien are illuminated during the season. Autumn colors of the night was very fantastic and beautiful. With its fantastic atomosphere, the event is especially popular with women. I did wonders for my mind.
I have checked out Rikugien.
Rikugien Garden (六義園, Rikugien) is a Tokyo metropolitan park in the Bunkyo area. The name of the park is composed of kanji that can be easily misread as Rokugien. The name itself comes from the idea of the six elements in waka poetry. The park is composed of a small pond, trees and a hill. The traditional Japanese garden in the park is a tourist attraction.

Dear Yume, the pictures you took at Rikugien at night are very beautiful! I am glad that you took your camera with you! I have always wondered what the meaning of Rikugien is, thank you for giving some explanation!
Next time let's go to Furukawa-gyoen and have a nice dinner at "八代", the restaurant with the red sign.
