Almost exactly 2 years ago today, October 23 2012, I was on the first full day of my third trip to Japan, a month-long excursion I called “Nerdtour 2012” (I blogged it on this site). One of the best places I went was this little slice of old Tokyo park design, called Kiyosumi Garden. It was just about 1 or 1.25 miles up the road from the apartment I stayed at, and my buddy John had been there before, so on a somewhat rainy day we set off to see this. It’s a nicely laid-out park, with a large pond or small lake in the middle, beautiful landscaping, and more turtles in one place than I had seen in a long time! I took this picture of a couple having their picture taken, I don’t know if they were models, or of they were a genuine couple preparing to get married. Either way, it was a stroke of luck getting this shot from across the lake, given it had been raining off and on with breaks in the clouds allowing the sun to shine. I plan to go back sometime in the next year, if all goes well, if not, then the year after. There is so much more of Japan to see!
Help!Things are tight all over for everyone, but if you could donate just a little bit I can keep the rent paid and the wolves at bay a little longer!
