Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens – Springtime in this ancient garden at the heart of Tokyo—known for its fairytale bridges, mystical ponds and hues of green— awaits the rebirth of weeping blossom trees. Koishikawa Korukuen was completed in 1629, created for ruler Tokugawa Mitsukuni.  Korukuen means “garden of enjoying pleasure or power, later on.”   The Japanese government designated this garden from the Edo Period as both a Special Place of Scenic Beauty and a Special Historical Site.  This Engetsu Bridge serves as a window into the past. #thinkpink at #KoishikawaKorakuenGardens #PauliAntoine #EtiquettedeManille #CulturalEtiquette
