渉成園の名残の紅葉/The Last Moment of Autumn colors at Shosei-en Garden


I had an appointment nearby on 8th, so dropped by Shosei-en Garden.

This garden always shows us beautiful moment of each year. I was almost reluctant to visit here because it was a bit late to see the best, but happily and luckily enough, the sun came out for me and shone around. The view changed gracefully and became wonderful like a painting.

The photo below is at Maple Lane, officially named in Japanese Tanpu-kei. As the name shows, this is the place you can fully enjoy Japanese maple. Japanese name Tanpu-kei is also based on vermillion color and maple, and valley.


The place is surely designed to enjoy this color change.
