There is a Tokyo metropolitan garden named Kyu-urukawateien near our house.
It takes 20 minutes from our house by walking.
There are both a rose garden and a Japanese garden.
Looking at the rose bud, There are 4 sepals.
At first,the two jagged sepals would start to open.
Then two round sepals would open.
The first two sepals would protect petals from bad insects.
Other two round sepals would cover the petals softly.
Looking at the stem,you can find the grafting a European rose to a Japanese rose.
European roses would not grow in Japan,because of the different weather.
This one is Japanese original rose,called Noibara.
There is a Japanese one in this garden.
There is a stone lantern by the pond.
There is a waterfall too.
This stone work is very famous.
It seems to fall apart,but never collapse.
This stone work is made of lava stones of Mt.Fuji.
Good by from this garden.
