Many white Japanese apricots were blooming on a branch of the tree. After the season of blossoms of apricot, the time of cherry blossoms comes.

By the way, this garden was originally built by Yoshiyasu Yanagisawa, an official in the Tokugawa shogunate. According to the record, the fifth shogun, Tsunayoshi Tokugawa visited this garden at least 58 times. It is said that the shadow of the day when it was built still remained here. Because it was built about 300 years ago, I don't have no way of confirming. Anyway, it is sure this garden is beautiful.
