Yesterday, we biked down to Nagoya Castle to see the fall leaves. Luckily for us, there happened to be a bonsai and chrysanthemum event going on, too!!
There were Japanese mannequins wearing traditional robes made from flowers at the entrance.
Inside, there was a nice little hut and waterwheel surrounded by colorful flowers.
We got to see many varieties of chrysanthemums that had been entered into a competition. I really liked the curly ones.
They also had flower bonsai on display! I had never seen them before, so I thought they were really cool!
Some of the chrysanthemums were as big as my head!!
Here is Nagoya Castle, surrounded by the fall leaves.
More flower bonsai.
I really liked this one with the thick, tree-like trunk.
This one looked like flower clouds.
I liked how this one looked like it was spilling out across the table.
A close-up of one of the bonsai.
Well, that is all for the bonsai. The next post will be about the newly restored parts of Nagoya Castle, the construction going on there, and the gardens.
