Sakura in Shikoku: Ritsurin Koen Park (栗林公園)

The Ritsurin Koen Park is one of the most famous and most beautiful historical gardens in Japan.

We only had about one hour at this place. Gosh…so much ground to cover and so little time!!


A weeping cherry tree!


Hyakkoku matsu (black pine tree)


Lovely koi in the pond….


Okedoinotaki (waterfall) with sakura


Kansuichi Pond


Spotted this bridge which was a sharp contrast to its surroundings.
