During the autumn, the Eizan electric train stops near Ninose Station in order to let passengers enjoy a tunnel of richly turning leaves. William was once on the train heading further up into the mountains, when he spied a private garden across the way, Hakuryu-en, by accident. He later visited the garden and obtained permission to photograph there. This image was taken from the inside of Fukuju-tei, one of the teahouse-style rest areas in the garden. The moment William took this image, the maple (momiji) was at the peak of its red splendor. We are grateful for this perfect timing.
From the Zen Gardens in Kyoto collection.
