Red Plum Blossoms
You can see the different colours of plum blossoms available.

Photographers In Garden
One of the things I like about Japanese photographers is that they all travel with tripods. No one looks at you strange when you show up with a tripod.

Plum Blossom
Given how early this flow is out, it is most likely a plum blossom

Lilies With Maple Behind
I like this photo because orange and maroon aren't common garden colours, but they work so well here.

Intermediate Egretta
Besides being Japan and the species being very different - I'm pretty sure it's not a Great Egret because the legs aren't black all the way up.

Pond With Carp
These were the most rowdy of the koi we saw in Japan. There were fish food stands along the water (honor system to pay) and the fish knew that people meant feeding time.

Tree In Suizeni-koen
The trees In Suizeni-koen garden are well maintained, a little overly so sometimes.

Garden And Pond
This is the view as you walk into the park. With the haziness, I wasn't happy with the photo, but I'm sure you could do a lot with a long lens.

Drinking Under Blossoms

I wish we had traditions like taking a drink under the blossoms.

This is part of the Gardens at Ryoanji Temple called the Kyoyochi Pond.

Moss Garden

Some Gardens Boast the number of types of Moss that can be found.  I think
my last lawn might have been competitive.

Zen Rock Garden

So it doesn't change very quickly - it sure is cool to look at. We are at Ryoanji Temple, trying to see
all 15 stones. Apparently the garden was designed by "Soami" who died in 1525.

People: Jesse, Sean

Model of Garden

This is a model of the Rock Garden.  The real garden is pretty hard to get far back from so this
gives you a good idea how it works.  You sit along the bottom edge and try to see all the stones - once you can,
you have reached a zen state.

Golden Pavilion

This temple is setup to be beautiful.  All around you tourists are taking pictures
of themselves and there parties in front of the temple.

Rock Garden
This is the Zen Garden in Ryoan-ji. From the viewing platform you attempt to see all 15 stones, but only 14 (or fewer) are visible from any position. This fifteenth century garden has all sorts of tricks. The far wall isn't even close to level and gives you a sense of depth from the forced perspective. The trees behind the back wall all have seasonal version (Cherry blossums, or falls colors, evergreen or deciduous.). The garden runs roughly east to west and the viewing platform is on the north side so the shadows change over the course of the day.
