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.
