Hama Rikyu Gardens Entrance (March 20th, 2011)

Tokyo 3-20 27

Walking across the Otemonbashi Bridge I reached the Hama Rikyu Gardens.

Tokyo 3-20 28

Since mon means gate, there must be one here.

Tokyo 3-20 29

Which there is and this is one side of it. Called Otemon it is the entrance to what was once the family gardens of the Tokugawa Shogun.

Tokyo 3-20 30

Impressive when you start to think of who's feet have walked through here.

Tokyo 3-20 32

If these stone walls could talk.

Tokyo 3-20 33

A bit of the history of these extremely large gardens.

Tokyo 3-20 34

And even the booth to pay has a bit of greenery going on.
