Iris in Kenrokuen
So a couple of weeks ago Sachiko dropped by Kanazawa, and as she had never been to Kenrokuen in the Spring, we decided to meander around the garden a bit. Of course, being Ishikawa, it was overcast and threatening rain, but at least it wasn't too hot.
The iris were gorgeous, and really I must admit that I will miss this garden when I leave. It is so peaceful and beautiful, I can't even count the number of times I have been to Kenrokuen, and yet I always find something new and interesting when I go back.
Let's hear it for the 'hold the camera out' self portrait style. I knew I should have brought a tripod! ;-) Actually though, the pictures came out kind of nice!
After the garden we went to the 21st Century Museum of Art, and checked out the famous "swimming pool" installation piece. It was interesting enough, but neither of us have an eye for modern art.
