Photos of a garden

I have just returned from Mito, a big town between Tokyo and the Fukushima nuclear plant; it`s famous for stinking sticky soybeans and the big garden Kairakuen. I taught English in Mito for two and half years, whilst there I regularly didn`t go to the garden. This time I was on holiday, so had no excuse.

Kairauken translates as a pleasure garden for everyone, and in all honesty, strolling around pointing my camera at colourful stuff was quite fun.

The March 11th earthquake damaged parts of the garden, some of which remain closed, but the reopened sections all had visitors.

Not a great photo perhaps, but there are people in it - real ones.

I take full responsibility for the good photos, all others were copied from another blog.
