Japanese Tea Garden

Stepping into Serenity

Discovering a garden in the midst of a busy, urban area is always a welcome surprise. One minute you’re dodging pedestrians headed in the opposite direction and a minute later you find yourself in a quiet park or garden.

In and around Tokyo there are serene Zen Gardens, Tea Gardens, and beautiful Parks bringing relief from humidity under canopies of towering Pines. In this installment, I share photos from a serene and spiritual Tea Garden located near the base of the Tokyo Tower.
