This photograph is taken in Rikugien Garden in Tokyo Bunkyo-ku. I visited this garden after a long time. In the lawn inside the garden, the azalea was cared for finely. A typical style of a Japanese garden is a stroll garden. This is a garden which makes an excursion and appreciates inside the garden. As a feature of development、it is the form which allotted centering on the big pond, surrounded the circumference with the park road, and reproduced the picturesque scenery of place, etc. with an artificial hill, a bridge, small island, a noted stone, etc. And, tea house is prepared as the rest station under walk in some places of a park road, and a view place from which a garden is viewed. It is the form mostly erected by the Zen temple in the Muromachi period and the feudal lord in the Edo period, and is regarded also as the compilation of a Japanese garden. In such meaning, it may differ from the western garden style which governs nature by symmetrical/geometric and rational design centering on the mansion or castle.

Exquisite shot over the green lawn adorned with the pink flowers.
A beautiful garden with a pond, cared well, and an attractive ancient lantern on far side.

I found the neat 'sculptures' are amazing in colours as well as the shapes blends harmoniously and this shot is beautiful full of good colours and strong contrast. It does look so tranquil and pleasant to view and indeed a great place to kill the time or to meditate. Well spotted and a pleasure to savour and works a treat. Congrats.

The colourful bushes really catch our eye in this beautiful garden. I like the way you framed it, with the lantern in background. Everything seems to be in the right place here and the light is very good.
