Okayama Tour : Korakuen

According to the guide that we met in castle, Korakuen is actually the backyard of the castle. The feudal lord wanted to have a place where he can relax, enjoy natures beauty alone,  or entertain some guest.

The bridge that connects the castle and the garden.


The garden from the other side of the river


The pond in the middle of the garden
yello chasing white


The little hill


the bridge and the house


the castle and the little ricefield


a little shrine hidden within the sakura trees


palm trees


a house where the river runs below it, or maybe its just a hut


all so green




the biggest I've seen among the fishes


a museum ( I think )

Any thoughts?
