Sankeien named after three valleys

by Hiroyuki

In Sankeien, which is a famous Japanese-style garden located in Yokohama city, fresh green and azalea flowers are now very beautiful. Sankeien literally means three valley garden and it was also derived from its founder's  pen-name. Its founder was Sankei Hara(his real name was Tomitaro Hara), who became a successful raw silk trader and made a fortune. Strolling round and viewing the whole scape takes about one hour and through the experience it fascinates me. My favorite one!
