Japanese Garden;

On a same day when I visited English Garden link last month, we also stopped by "Chofu-garden 長府庭園" in Shimonoseki-city. 
I didn't want to miss posting Tex's meme.  I'm happy if my pictures from this garden can brings you a bit of Japanese atmosphere.  Haha, visiting two places and could have enjoyed both western and eastern garden in one day;-)







I've chased this Brown-eared Bulbul, happy he perched the plum tree there.

Linking this post to "Good Fences"

Thank SO MUCH for your kind visits, I'm tied up till this week end.
But I WILL try hard to catch up with you!

How fun you got to visit both western and eastern gardens in one day :-) This is such a beautiful Japanese garden. I love the stone bridge over the pond. And waterfall and koi fishes are very pretty! The last photo is so lovely with plum tree and brown-eared bulbul. Spring is in the air :-)
Have a wonderful day, Miyako san xoxo

It is so beautiful there. It's as if all the weeds grow on this side of the earth and not your side.

Stunning photography of this serene and beautiful place. And you are right --that really was quite a "round-the-world" garden tour you took all in one day. What fun.

I love the delicate blossoms on the graceful branch; really looks like Japanese art to me! And I'm glad to see that beautiful bulbul again.

Thank you for this lovely post.

Beautiful gardens and variety of fences. The Brown-eared Bulbul is a pretty bird. I'm glad you were able to get a picture of it.

Japanese gardens are always fascinating. My mom's a big fan of bonsais and blossoms. She tries growing bobsai at ger garden and she's somehow successful :) she has 2 now.

I alwayd like how s Japanese garden is arranged, they're absolutely neatly organized and kind of emits strong relaxing energy.
