After visiting Atsuta Jingu, we headed over to Shirotori Garden, which is within walking distance of the shrine. Shirotori means “White Bird”.
The sakura are almost finished in Nagoya. Here is a shot of some particularly pretty blossoms.
A small, artificial waterfall at Shirotori.
A bridge and a lantern in the garden.
Some of the koi had moss growing on them!?!?!
We stopped at a tea house in the garden. Teddy got the lemon cream pie set.
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.
There were many lakes at Shirotori Garden.
This koi looked like a demon fish!

Ducks swimming in the lake.
More sakura at the garden.
I thought that these red-tinged leaves were particularly pretty.
Well, that is all for today! I hope you enjoyed the pictures!
