Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken in Kiyosumi Garden in Koto-ku of the Tokyo downtown area. This is the typical stroll garden which the wealthy merchant of the Edo period built. There is a big pond in the center, there is a promenade in the circumference, the stone lanterns are placed somewhere and the pine trees are planted around the pond. A tearoom is located in one corner so that a pond may be overlooked. If we will go to a Japanese garden, we sometimes will meet with the spectacle which is taking a photograph by wearing Japanese tradition clothes. A man wears a crested kimono & hakama and the woman wears the bridal outfit. The woman has the red umbrella and the man has purple ones by hand. Seemingly it is a season of winter and many ducks were sailing in the pond. The combination of a Japanese garden and tradition clothes may be a material as nostalgia for the good old days.
