1.There are many “pine trees” in Ritsurin Garden

This Japanese garden, as a villa of Matsudaira Takamatsu lord, it seems that successive lords have been repaired and completed nearly 300 years ago.
There are lots of wonderful pine trees

The technology to control the branches and show square (box-like) is wonderful.
But, I felt sorely painful against pine…

It is not pine, but the landscape of “Nan-ko(South Pond)”.
If the season comes up, it is said that the Satsuki is beautiful .

Go through Gei-shun-kyo and head to South Lake.
It is strange that different perspectives make it look like another view even if you see the same bridge.

Because of these small rocks, I feel that South Pond looks wonderful.

3.Kyu(old) Higurashi Tei, garden is also excellent

Kyu(old) Higurashi Tei@Ritsurin Garden (Takamatsu, Kagawa)
A tea room built around 1700 was moved near the West Pond and is now called “Kyu(old) Higurashi Tei”.
The building is good, but the garden is also nice( ̄▽+ ̄*)
