Nice and Simple


This is the little footbridge that crosses over to the Japanese teahouse at Koku Park. I like how simple it is.

And if you turn around you have this view of the pond and waterfall.

I love it!

And yes the train was coming towards me!

The little bridge is charming, but it's the pond and waterfall that I love! Beautiful.

How did they do that? I am speechless with sighs. Even the man-made bridge seems like an integral part of the natural landscape (and the man-made waterfall). It surprises me that these views can be found in Koku Park. Nice place!

It's a beautiful place!

Ann said...

nice romantic place to go for a cup of Japanese tea. Do you perform tea ceremonies?

Francisca said...

Sweet, Kaori.

When a kid, I was absolutely sure that every Japanese house had a bridge like this one...

Absolutely beautiful setting. Love how the bridge seems to be a natural part of the setting.

That is so beautiful. It's very much what I picture when I think of a Japanese garden.

Tall Gary, I'm surprised how many bridges I've found in Koku Park myself! I've yet to go by and find the bridge you suggested, but I will soon :D
