A day always so mild and sunny today … we left for the West of the city, towards a district filled with nurseries. The opportunity to address a mini-conference on “niwaki cultivation”.
Then, we go for lunch in a small jewel nestled in the forest on the banks of the Hozu River, at the very tasty kaiseki cuisine. I love the assortment of autumn food and colors in harmony with the season … As for the view from the terrace …
We continue the day with a large temple garden and its pond, Tenryu-ji…
…to finish with the sumptuous and “small path that climbs and meanders in the mountain” Okochi Sanso. The walking, preceded by a tea matcha, sharpens the senses. Climbing the hill, I feel like I’m “at home”.
At the top, we discover the meanders of the Hozu River, with its mountains and deep valleys that intersect over its course. Wonderful !
