I had a delightful day with the Takayama family in Rikugien Garden in Itabashi. It was a very bright day, but we found our own shade. After playing in the ginkgo leaves, we wandered the paths and admired the stunning colours that are just starting the wane. This is a great park in all seasons, but not the best for photography as you have to stick to the paths. It is also super busy as it is one of the special places of scenic beauty in Tokyo.
