Ritsurin Garden Park

Ritsurin Garden in Takamatsu is the most beautiful park I've seen in Japan or anywhere in the world.  It is one of the most famous historical gardens in Japan and the top sight seeing location in Takamatsu.  In 1953, it was designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty.  The admission is only 410 yen.  

After entering the park, I was approached by a volunteer guide who offered to give me a tour free of charge.  I accepted!  He was a wealth of knowlege and he enjoyed practicing his English with me. There must not have been very many foreigners in the Gardens that day, because soon I had a second volunteer guide, also practicing his English.  If you are in Kagawa, you won't want to miss this place.  I plan to go back when there are more flowers in bloom.  It is a fabulous place!

Both Guides - wasn't I lucky?
