Suizen-ji Jōju-en located in Kumamoto of Kyushu Island, is beyond word to describe its beauty, a haven of serenity a person can find traveling, an everlasting moment with its scenery, the 370 years old Tsukiyama garden.
The garden is dated back to 1636 as a tea retreat for the back then Japanese Lord, Hosokawa Tadotoshi, who was head of the Kumamoto Domain(how the Japanese say their “region”) in the Edo era, the garden in this era aka the Tsukiyama would have Mt.Fiji as the major symbolization of their Japanese spirits and soul, so as in here as well, the main part of the garden is symbolized as Mount Fuji, the ponds and small lakes resembling the islands of Japan.
Hello October, hello fall.
It’s hard to believe that the party feast of the year is around the corner again. Whenever the weather starts to change, or trying to find a serene picture for my iPhone wallpaper, above photos would always be the first flash in mind, and I’d thought I’d share my favourites to all.
This was taken back in winter-spring, when the weather started to change, just with my iphone5, I’m blown away how my phone work with the luminous sunset, and of course the astonishing beauty as I walked through the garden.
The garden has been declared by the national government a historic site of scenic beauty.
