I’ll always be amazed by the pockets of greenery and parks you can find in Tokyo tucked in between all the modern buildings and structures. It is a testament of the Japanese culture of being in harmony with nature.
This is Koishikawa Korakuen, one of Tokyo’s oldest and best Japanese gardens. It is located next to the Tokyo Dome (a huge baseball stadium) which is the spherical structure you see in the background. It really reminded me of a giant spaceship… like the one from the movie, Independence Day (great movie by the way).
This shot here is a personal favorite. The sharp reflection in the stream really captured my imagination. It felt like I could jump right through it into another world. Luckily I was still sober enough to stop myself from doing that.
A beautiful landscape garden in the middle of a bustling metropolitan. Only in Japan, folks.
