Kimono and Flowers – Spring at Jindai Botanical Garden
I haven’t got the chance to blog recently due to being busy with my graduation thesis. I didn’t want this beautiful pleasant spring weather to be wasted away inside before the arrival of the rainy season in Japan. So I decided to dress in the kimono I got in Kyoto (click here to see the previous blog on kimono) and strolled in Jindai Botanical Garden.
Jindai Botanical Garden is just absolutely beautiful. It actually makes me want to move and live around here. This botanical garden is packed with flowering plants and visitors can look at flowers throughout the year. The beginning of the may is the end of the dangling purple wisteria and the roundish azalea shrubs. It is also the beginning to the rose season.
Another thing I love about this botanical garden is that it is not simply a garden but more like a park. The range of landscape and plants is so diverse. There is a greenhouse and in front of this greenhouse is the rose garden with the fountain in the middle. Inside the rose garden is a gazebo and I love how it reminded me of an English garden. Next to the rose garden is a walk way underneath the wisteria. Beyond the wisteria is the azalea field which is next to the coi fish pond and stream. Acrross the water is the great lawn.
This is why I love Jindai Botanical Garden.
