It has been a while since I last did a Japan post, so today we are going back to Kyoto, the city where I lived for nearly a year. A couple of days before leaving Japan, my dad and I went on a little tour of various places around Kyoto. One of these places was Shosei-en garden.
When I went, Shosei-en really felt like a secret garden. Despite the fact that it is a few minutes walk from Kyoto Station it was so calm and peaceful. The only other people we saw were a cleaner, a few old ladies and a young couple.
It was a lovely place to wander around, with pretty bridges, loads of water lilies and some traditional buildings. There is also great view of Kyoto Tower.
