Here are some photos I took at the Kiyosumi Gardens, a small municipal park in Tokyo, just about a mile or so from my apartment.
I’m not going to write up much, it was just a nice, peaceful oasis in the middle of the suburban neighborhood. Originally the grounds of a major industrialist, and before that part of a nobleman’s estate, it’s been like this for a few hundred years at least. This day, it kept threatening to rain, and it finally did when I was well away from any shelter except for some of the trees! Fortunately it was a rain, not a storm! I had a waterproof covering for my camera, which gave me some peace of mind and allowed me to take a couple of pictures in the rain, but most of them didn’t come out (the cover kept sliding over the lens, naturally!)
At any rate, here are the best of the photos.
