Shirotori Garden

After visiting Atsuta Jingu, we headed over to Shirotori Garden, which is within walking distance of the shrine. Shirotori means “White Bird”.

Sakura

The sakura are almost finished in Nagoya. Here is a shot of some particularly pretty blossoms.

Waterfall

Bridge and Lantern

Koi

Some of the koi had moss growing on them!?!?!

Lemon Cream Pie

We stopped at a tea house in the garden. Teddy got the lemon cream pie set.

Maccha Zenzai

I got the Maccha Zenzai. It was maccha green tea with adzuki beans and toasted mochi. It was quite delicious, but the seaweed that came with it was absolutely foul.

Lake

There were many lakes at Shirotori Garden.

Demon Koi

This koi looked like a demon fish!

Sakura 2

Leaves

I thought that these red-tinged leaves were particularly pretty.

Well, that is all for today! I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
