[Higo Hosokawa Garden] and the cherry blossoms of the vestige bridge

I have a lot of pictures today. Last Saturday, I saw the Higo Hosokawa garden near the Toden Arakawa line and the cherry blossoms around the vestige bridge.


[Official Website]

【 Facility name 】 Higo Hosokawa Garden
【 Nearest 】 Toden Waseda Station, Gokokuji Station, Edogawa Bridge station, etc.

In fact, I went to see the cherry blossoms along the river → Higo Hosokawa garden → Yongqing bunko in order to get off the streetcar at the Vestige Bridge, but I will write about Higo Hosokawa Garden ahead. This Higo Hosokawa Garden was formerly a park like a dense in the name “Shin Edogawa Park”, but it seems to have been renovated and reopened in 2017 after the renovation. When I introduced before, I was able to stretch the plants considerably, so I changed my impression considerably.

This is the map around Higo Hosokawa Garden
There is a garden near Toden Waseda Station. Because there is the road which follows from the garden to the Yongqing Bunko, I think that it is good to go through here if going to yongqing Bunko from Waseda. In addition, because it is the famous place of cherry blossoms along the Kamitagawa which is a cherry blossom mark, I put the photograph later this.

This is the entrance. I feel that the entrance itself has not changed significantly, but I can see that the atmosphere is quite different from the park age already. However, because it is free now, I put it willingly.
I forgot to take a picture for a moment, but there is a building which was a University of the Hosokawa family named the Matsuseikaku in this left hand, and it is renovated and there seems to be a meetinghouse and a tea place now.

It is a spectacle of such a feeling when entering the garden. Now it looks like a decent daimyo garden.
This is the place where there was originally a shimoyashiki of the Hosokawa family, and it is a migratory water fountain garden.

Angle difference. Because it is not so wide, it can look around if there is about 15 minutes.
There was an entrance around the right back of this photograph and it was able to pass through.

It is a little advanced area.
The pine is the most visible on the left. By the way, it was Saturday, and a guided tour was held. It seems to be held at 14:00 every Saturday in 2019.

In this area, I feel the garden of the daimyo especially.
It was a park of the atmosphere like the mountain before, and it is a remarkable transformation w

Half of the garden is hilly. As you climb up, you can overlook the pond like the photo at the beginning.
It is a part of the cherry tree roadside along the Kamitagawa that it looks far.

The cherry blossoms are blooming in this garden.
It is just a little w in the blog of the official site, so I introduce the condition bloom along with the cherry trees around, after next year and I do not miss the best timing to reference it.

The back of the garden is like a little hike. The day was also full bloom, such as Shaga.
There is an yongqing Bunko ahead of this. On this day, sakura Namiki → Higo Hosokawa garden → yongqing Bunko → Noma Memorial hall → Tsubayama-so I was able to fully enjoy the Waseda neighborhood.

With regard to the garden, I will go back and introduce the cherry blossom tree roadside to the Higo Hosokawa Garden from the Vestige Bridge station of Toden Arakawa line.

Here is the view of the river from the bridge.
It is similar to the scene of Meguro River in Nakameguro, but it is not so well known here, so it is comfortable to be vacant w but Edo-around the Meiji era was a famous place, Utagawa Hiroshige’s “sights Edo hundred Scenic” is also depicted. Originally it seemed to have been made the ground of the anecdote “Yamabuki no Sato” of Ota, this is a story that the meaning was not able to be understood in the daughter if it went to borrow the winnowing to the farmer because of the Ota road irrigation in the rain in silence. It is told that it is the one that it was put on “it is one of the fruits of the Yamabuki, and it is not sad” (the real = winnowing) and it came to learn the waka in my lack of education at a later time from the retainer after it picking up waka collection. There was a thing like the inscription on the side of the bridge, too.

It was a very full bloom day.
There were countless cherry blossoms along the river, so we could see the scenery of the petals flowing through the water.

You can also walk along the side of the tree.
I was attracted to the stemmed museums and old cafes in the middle, but I had to through because it was just after lunch W

I can watch it up close, and the number is not odd anyway W
I wonder why there are not so many hanami guests.

Was it a bridge near Waseda?

Slightly up to the last.

So, I have enjoyed the cherry blossoms of the vestige bridge and the new Higo Hosokawa Garden. The season of cherry Blossoms is already over in 2019, but I think that we can see a beautiful spectacle after next year. It was a hidden spot where you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing because it is not well known.
After this, I went through the Higo Hosokawa Garden and saw the exhibition of the Yongqing Bunko. Next time I will tell you about it.
