Choushuu-kaku (tea-house named "a hermitage for listening to the sounds of autumn"): Sankei-en (Yokohama)

In the shady grove where early winter has just arrived, the flaming colors of leaves are exceedingly in harmony with the silent simplicity of this old tea-ceremony house.

The snow-white of the shoji paper screens is presenting a graceful contrast with the brightly colored leaves of crimson, vermilion and gold.

The lively songs of winter birds are heard in the cool and gentle winds, that are softly rustling the colorful withering leaves of this passing season.
