Kenrokuen in Fall
The weather last week started out cold, but by Thursday it was warm and sunny again. I took the opportunity to go back to Kenrokuen for the first time since late spring. While the leaves hadn't finished changing yet, I was lucky and caught the gardeners putting up the rope 'tents' that protect the trees from the heavy Ishikwawa snow.
