Japanese Confectionery Shop (part 1) ;

  *Sakuraan "茶蔵庵" at prefectural capital*
On 11th my friend and us drove to our prefectural capital to see the Japanese Confectionery Shop which has the large garden and Exhibition Hall.  For part 1, let me introduce the garden. One of the sweets called 'toshiro, 豆子郎’ below is our favorite.

Entrance of the "Season's Garden", ' shiki-tei 四季庭'
I'd appreciate it if you enjoy the garden enlarging the pictures :-)

Seeing the entrance from inside
Stone lantern and waterwheel

Yellow irises on the right side of the picture above and the zoomed ones


Exit of the garden

Entrance of the Exhibition Hall

On the right side of the entrance, we found old wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox)
This old tree has a hole inside. My friend and husband were staring at it curiously.

Linking this post to "Wednesday Around the World", "NF Trees n Bushes",

So sorry for my early posting. I'll post part 2 next week. 
And my next post will be on Saturday.  Try visiting you Soon, friends.
Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;

Miyako, so thrilled to find your site this morning and enjoy your beautiful garden pictures. Very special with all the structures as well. Have a wonderful day, my friend. Hugs from Texas.

Gardening is clearly an art in your country ... these gardens are exquisite and I love the old tree at the end, so twisted and exotic. It must be wonderful to have these gardens and a sweet shop close enough to go to on occasion. Beautiful, Orchid.

Wow, the garden is beautiful! Looks like they take care of the garden really well.
The old wintersweet looks interesting. Kind of like got twisted. I'd stare at it with curiosity if I were there, too :-)

Have a lovely day, Miyako san!

These gardens are lovely and remind me a little of the formal gardens we visited at Himeji Castle.
Have a lovely day.

Japanese gardens are always so peaceful and beautiful. (I am sure the ones I've seen here in the States are not as lovely as the ones really IN Japan, but I think they try hard to make them as much like the real thing as they can.)

Amy Franks said...

I love the colours, especially the reds :-)
