Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden (March 13th, 2011)

Tokyo 3-13 133

It may seem I have a lot of pictures of this garden.

Tokyo 3-13 134

But for me it was amazing to see this in the middle of Tokyo.

Tokyo 3-13 135

And given the circumstances, I felt all the more appreciative of being able to see it.

Tokyo 3-13 136

It's hard to put into words how I feel now about seeing something like this.

Tokyo 3-13 137

Being able to experience it, and that it's still there.

Tokyo 3-13 138

Because so much was lost on March 11th.

Tokyo 3-13 139

And it wasn't over with.

Tokyo 3-13 140

Yet having a place like this to take a moment out from all the sadness, loss and worry,

Tokyo 3-13 141

was very much needed and appreciated.

Tokyo 3-13 142

For a people who have given a lot of beauty and thoughtfulness to the world,

Tokyo 3-13 143

this one traveler was and still is deeply touched by it all.
