Draped in Autumn Hues

Every year I let myself be guided by the inviting autumn hues of Japanese maple leaves into this idyllic hidden garden. It is open for public viewing throughout autumn which is indeed the best time. Autumn season is very short and I find this place to be the perfect spot to relish its beauty. Here, you can find a garden pond that offers an enchanting and dramatic reflection of the red leaves. Stroll around the garden, sit in one of the huts or view the scenery from the temple's tatami room (tea room) while sipping tea. It is lovely everywhere you look.

Autumn is sweetness in my eyes.

Landed with Poise

Just the right amount of Contrast!

Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Grandpa paints nature's fine work.

Take me for a walk and let's forget about our shoes!

This gold is priceless.

Even the shadows can't resist the golden touch.

Dance of the leaves.

And we fell…

There's never enough red.

Took my sweet time and didn't rush like the water because there was beauty to capture.

      the aestetics of this is subtly different from anything similar here in europe. i like "dance of the leaves" most, the framing here is irritatingly strange.

      Superbe. The "dance of the leaves" photo is astonishing. Any further comment is unnecessary.
