Here's Picturesque Spring! Three Michelin-starred Ritsurin Garden

I visited Ritsurin Garden a little earlier for the best season of Somei-Yoshin cherry blossoms. The cherry trees in the garden has just begun to bloom, but the one near Engetsu Bridge seen from a hill observatory Hiraiho, is now in its best and stands at a picturesque location! What's more, the white magnolia and weeping cherry blossom are also in their best.
Ritsurin Garden changes its attractions as the time you visit. I think the cherry blossom season has two best times a year, because the weeping cherry blossom (Shidare Zakura) becomes full-bloom earlier than Somei Yoshino cherry blossoms. So don't feel disappointed if you visit before full-bloom, there're some other blossoms in their best.
