Ceremonial Photograph In Front Of Tall Tree

A bridal couple was taking a ceremonial photograph in the garden

Walking along a causeway built on what was once the moat of Edo Castle, I arrived at a large hotel. It is the Hotel New Otani, which has nearly 1500 rooms. But this is Tokyo and I am not a tourist. I don't care how cheap the rooms are, I have no use for them. The reason I came here was to visit the garden in the hotel grounds. The site on which the hotel was built was once a daimyo's mansion, and there was a garden made from the daimyo's garden in those days.

The garden is built on a slope with a pond and a stream running through the trees. There is a peaceful atmosphere in the air. I'm not the only one who thinks the place like this is picturesque. At a corner of the garden, the bride and groom, who would have been married at the hotel a few minutes ago, were taking a photo. The bride and groom were standing on the bridge over the pond, posing for a photo. And everyone was pointing their cameras at the bride. Beyond the bride stood a large tree, and beyond that, a large building towered over the bride.
