Well it is a month or so until our visit to Japan – skipping Kokufu this year – and we always begin by looking back at prior trip photos.  Today, we are posting a few taken in February of 2008.

It was our first visit to Shunkaen and in many ways it is what we as Americans might think a Japanese Bonsai Garden might look like – but soon learn that most don’t which is perhaps not a bad thing whatsoever.

A nice garden with lots of trees but also a very interesting museum in which to see displays of trees and accent plants as well as some very nice suiseki.

We hope you enjoy the photos.
