Chofu Mori Residence with Autumn Color and Shrike;

*Chofu Mori Residence*
Early this month, I went to Hofu-City where is about a little more than an hour away by car from my house. It was the year end gift season and good chance to see relatives.  After having great time with my aunts and uncle, my sweet husband -;) drove our car to this old residence located in the same city. It has been long since I visited this place before. Thankful to my husband giving me a chance to enjoy beautiful autumn color ♪ This is the link page explaining about this residence. 
*There is a beautiful Row of Pine Trees before the entrance*

Picture below is the entrance of the residential living space.

And also the Wooden Screen with Family Crest of Mori-family. 

*I am happy if I can share the beauty of autumn color from the garden with you*
* Bull-Headed Shrike from the tree in front of my house *
I am really sad to inform the news that the precious tree (for me p-;) would be cut in the near future.  Electric company is planning to make a solar system in the lot where this tree is located. How SAD that I may have to lose the special bird-watching spot and also resting place for cute birds.
 Thank you very much for stopping by ;
   I always appreciate your sweet comments;

  2. The foliage colors is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing! Wishing you a grand week!

  3. Miyako - that is quite a residence! How blessed you are to be able to stroll its grounds and share the terrific photos of the landscaping with us. I admire the pruning that gives many of the trees such intricate shapes. I share your sadness about the tree that will be cut down - your bird photos are one of the things that I always enjoy about your posts! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  4. So beautiful! Love the trees and the bull-headed shrike.

  5. It was fabulous to see your beautiful Japanese views with pines and stunning buildings. Happy MM Miyako.

  6. Your husband is always so sweet to take you to these places. The residence is beautiful. Love the pine trees leading up to the entrance and the garden is kept so nicely!
    Oh it is so sad to lose a tree. Tree in front of our house had to be cut down one year as it was interfering with the utility line. I was so sad! I hope a new tree is planted somewhere else. Bull-headed shrike in your photos is very cute :-)
    Have a great new week, Miyako san xo

  7. Dearest Miyako,
    My husband Pieter had a scientist friend from Japan, Kanichi Mori...
    What lovely photos and also the Bull headed shrike.

  8. Wow, what a beautiful and impressive entrance to this residence! Thank you for showing these beautiful manicured trees where Japan is so famous for, to All Seasons. So sorry for the birding spot in your garden that you are going to lose! Hopefully, the birds will find another spot in your garden:) Have a wonderful December week, Miyako!

  9. Japanese gardens are so peaceful and beautiful. Happy Holidays.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  10. Beautiful houses! My parents had their own business and sold so many Citizen watches they were invited to Japan twice in the 70´s.
    I still have the "umbrella" he gave me, the kimono surely does not exist anymore, but I had to walk to school as a "Geisha" for Carnival in it. As it was a real kimono it took me ages, thank you for the memories and Merry Christmas to you.

  11. Sorry, SEIKO-watches, I still have a batch here!

  12. Miyako, those grounds are just stunning. I like how the trees and shaped. So lovely. Thank you for linking up.
