Mito (Kairakuen Garden)

Posted on 3/24/2008 by Myriam Moret

Today is Mickey Mouse Day as I will be heading to Tokyo Disney in a few hours. Ahhhh! Insomnia, we've been friends for so long, maybe you could give me a rest sometimes (and there was actually no pun intended)

Finaly here are some pics from a day trip to Mito on march 9th, which is actually way far, like 2 hours by train from Tokyo. I thought it was a lot closer mostly due to the fact that it is listed in the "Tokyo Area" list of things to see. I uess we all have a different view of "area" and they say it's 65min by train... if your're lucky enough to cather the RAPID service.

Kairakuen Garden is ranked among Japan's 3 finest landscape gardens and was built in 1841 by lord Tokugawa Nariaki. During Ume Blossom season in February and March, the 3000 apricot and plum trees are covered with small flowers in shades from white to bright pink. It was a very nice day and the walk from the station is on a strech of land in the middle of a river where hundreds of ducks, swans and other marine birds gather. Very beautiful! We stopped there and ate our packed sandwiches. On the way back I snapped some awesome pics of the purple sunset sky over the river.

Come back the day after tomorrow for M's adventures at Fujisan...


Aujourd'hui c'est le Jour de Mickey Mouse. Je m'en vais à Tokyo Disney dans quelques heures. Ahhhh!  Insomnie, ça fais longtemps qu'on est amies, tu pourais p-e me laisser dormir des fois. :p

Finalement, des photos de la journée à Mito le 9 mars. Mito c'est assez loin en fait, 2h de train a partir de Tokyo. Je pensais que c'étais beaucoup plus près dû au fait que c'est listé dans la "Région de Tokyo" dans une liste de choses à voir. Il faut croire qu'on a tous une différente opinion de ce qu'est la "région" et ils disent aussi que c'est 65 min. de train... si vous êtes chanceux et attrapez le service RAPIDE.

Le Jardin de Kairakuen est parmis les 3 plus beau jardins paysagers au Japon et fût construit en 1841 par le seigneur Tokugawa Nariaki. Pendant la période de floraison des Ume en février et mars, les 3000 apricotiers et pruniers sont couvert de petites fleurs dans les tons de blanc a rose éclatant. C'étais une belle journée et la marche à partir de la station suit une rivière ou des centaines de canards, des cygnes et autres oiseaux marins se rassemblent. C'étais très beau. C'est l'à qu'on a mangé le lunch qu'on avait apporté. Sur le retour, le ciel violet du couché de soleil sur la rivière s'est laissé prendre en photo.

Revenez après-demain pour les aventures de M au Mont Fuji...
