Hakuryuen is not open to the public. William found this private garden by chance. It was “love at first sight” for William with this garden, so he asked permission from the owner of this garden to take the picture of this premises. Even though the owner couldn’t speak a word of English, he welcomed William and invited him to take as many pictures of the garden anytime he would wish. The garden is arranged in the way that one can appreciate its beauty from the various angles, as you can see in the images William had captured.
This garden was one of the places William always visited.
