Strolling in Rikugi-en

On sunday we went to Rikugi-en, a quintessential Japanese-style "stroll" garden for a stroll. It was a boiling day, but lovely to be somewhere so green and tranquil. There are lots of paths to meander down, with hidden arbours in sun-dappled glades and a central lake surrounded by manicured lawns. As a contrast to the serenity, there are the killer Koi and terrapins that rush like torpedos at any sign of food! We were kindly offered some bread pieces to feed the fish by a man and his little boy, and it was gone within seconds.
