Rinshun-kaku and Choshuu-kaku: Sankei-en (Yokohama)

This quiet place of Sankei-en comprises the private houses and garden where Tomitaro (Sankei) Hara  (1868–1939) and his family lived.

All of the houses and bridge shown in this picture were relocated to this Sankei-en garden as a portion of his fine collection of Japanese historic buildings.

The slanting sun of late afternoon was brightening up the needles of pine trees finely.
