Spring at Murasaki Shikibu Park

Verdant park decorated with colorful spring flowers

When I visited a 200-meter-long wisteria tunnel at Murasaki Shikibu Park in early May, I explored the other areas of it as well. This park is actually more famous for its beautifully landscaped Japanese Garden, and I wanted to see it in this season when the fresh green must be brilliant. I was right, the scene was shining with verdant greenery, plus various spring flowers such as azaleas and irises were adding their colors to it. People were strolling inside the garden appreciating its fresh beauty. I had visited this park in autumn when colored leaves were so beautiful, but I found out anew that this park is beautiful throughout the year!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
