This was a wonderful park to visit on a beautiful sunny day. I had difficulty narrowing the photos down to around 35-40 pics. The collection started out at 300 photos, and I uploaded about 100 to flickr. Getting that 100 down to the ones on this page was tough. Hope you enjoyed them.
Have you ever been to Hamarikyu yourself?
Wallpaper: I have uploaded wallpaper at 1920px for these shots and some more to flickr.
@Shibuya246: Hamarikyu Gardens, Japan Photo-Post http://bt.io/EsH6 A great way to start my Sunday morning,w/a walk in the park. A great time of the year to start or end your day. A blending of the city in the background,w/the peaceful, tranquil setting of the Sakura in full bloom. Yes I think it’s time for a visit back to Kyoto. Those were some awesome photos you took of that also.. Where has the time gone? Seems like only yesterday you were there. I think Kimonobox was there at the same time,.
Well it’s Sunday night there. Sunday morning here in Texas.
Have a great week coming up, and the next Conbini post will be at our doorstep before you know it. 🙂
Thanks. Yes, it is probably time for a trip down to Tokyo on the Shinkansen. Time to get the calendar out and pencil in some dates.
Can’t say i’ve been to this garden myself; there’s too many nice gardens in and around Tokyo 🙂
Great pics, looks like a wonderful day !
Fabulous dude! I plan on going there in a couple of weeks and trying out the tea ceremony. I’m assuming you did it so how was the tea and sweets?
Very Nice photos Alan!.. I will go on day.. It s look like a very nice place !
i just adore this stonework…it invites you up the hill.
It sure does. They were only tiny hills, but had a lot of character.
I love the colours in photo #30 and the photo of the bird taking flight. It looks like you had a fabulous day and thanks so much for sharing.
Gorgeous pictures as always. 🙂
Speaking of tea, have you ever been to a tea ceremony?
I took some lessons when I was in Japan and I totally fell in love with it.
Was the macha at the tea house served together with some okashi?
indeed the tea came with Japanese wagashi
Have been following your photos for awhile now and after seeing these must comment that they are just stunning. I was in Japan last year for my sons wedding and fell in love with the country. He is back in Australia now with his lovely wife (our new Japanese Daughter in-law) but I must admit after seeing photos like these it almost makes me home sick for Japan.
Thank you. So glad you could enjoy them. It is great to visit these places and then be able to relive the memories later by going through the photos. 🙂 I will probably be in Australia for 1 week at the end of this month. Gold Coast.
The blooming sakura is just beautiful. I just love it. Thanks for sharing your photos, you are awesome.
Wow, Tokyo is so industrial but beautiful at the same time.
Shot Some very nice scenery. Really beautiful.
Keep it up!
wow all of your pics always have sooo much power!! i really enjoy watching them, make memories coming back <3
I’ve been living in Tokyo for 4 years & this is my favourite spot to take a quiet break in the city. After a walk through the park, I usually sit or take a nap under the trees next to the waterside path (your picture 17). You can hear the lapping of the water, the fish jumping, and the sea birds, as well as the boat sirens. From the park, you can take a little boat up river to Asakusa, a lovely way to see some of the city, if you visit Tokyo. I really enjoyed your pictures and will be paying more attention to some of the details your pictures bring out 😀 Thanks!
Thanks. This sure is a beautiful park that sometimes seems to get forgotten. Nice to visit in very season
This story is from ur experience, but I feel like I became an actress of the beautiful film. New discovery about Japan through ur words. Wow!!
Lovely article and great place to get lost and hide from the busy life of Tokyo!
