Drive way to the Garden of the local lord;

After the Meiji Restoration (the period of modernization in which aspects of Western systems and culture were adopted), former local lord called Mouri "毛利" constructed the beautiful garden which completed in 1916. These pictures are from the starting point of the drive way of the garden to the entrance. I hope the pine trees along side the road can be considered as a fence :-)

view from the parking lot to the drive way, here is the actual fence;

long passage with lots of pine trees;

reached the entrance;

On the same day we visited Hydrangea Temple (my previous post), my thoughtful (p;) husband stopped by this place saying I might be able to use the pics of the entrance for the Tex's meme.  As it got late and tired to stroll inside, we didn't visit there. 
I'll introduce the garden someday.   Thanks sweetheart;

Thank you very much for stopping by;

Linking this post to Good Fences.

That is such a beautiful garden! And it has very long history. Looks it's been very well taken care of.
How wonderful of your husband to stop there for you. He is very sweet :-)

Dearest Miyako,
That is a lovely post and a very kind gesture of your dear husband.
Wish we would have such lovely pine trees. Wonder what variety they are...

Awww, your hubby was thinking of Tex's meme. That's so sweet! Your pine trees have much more character than ours. Love the interesting shapes of the limbs, and the beautiful architecture there. Incredible!

Your husband is a gem among men! Mine helps me blog in that same way and I think we are both very lucky.

The trees are a beautiful living fence.
