Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in Rikugien garden in the end of autumn four years ago. It seemed that the leaf of marple trees dyed red and symbolized last autumn.
The almsgiving which tells "Yukitsuri" to the big tree of the pine of a garden and protects trees from cold or snow on it was made. Only the stone lantern stood in the figure which does not change all the year round.

(p.s.)
Stone lantern: It is a lantern of a basic form. This lantern is called the work of the Edo last stage. It consists of seven parts. The partial names from a top are a holy jewel, hat, fire plate, middle plate, pole, the foundation, and a foundation stone. Material is a granite of the kind of rock where magma got cold and which was solidified and made.

Yukituri: Yukitsuri is a technique for preserving trees and shrubs from heavy snow. Trees are given extra support by bamboo poles with ropes attached to limbs; whereas, shrubs are often tied tightly around the circumference.
