Japanese Gardens

We spent more time in Japanese gardens than we did anywhere else in Japan. Some people may find this rather dull, but gardens in Japan are exquisite and peaceful. We visited Tokyo Midtown Park, Shinjuku Central Park, Shinjuku National Gardens, and Kyoto Botanical Gardens.

These purple flowers reminded me of Willy Wonka.
