Sankeien Gardens in Autumn

Fall Colors at this Beautiful Japanese gardens

By JJ Walsh    - 1 min read

A short walk from Hiroshima airport is Sankeien- a lovely Japanese garden to visit. In Autumn, many of the leaves turn to yellow, red, orange while some stay a vibrant green, offering a beautiful contrast. In November and December, the temperature is cooler, but there are still many pleasant sunny days with clear, blue skies. It is easy to lose track of time by wandering around in these lovely gardens, feed the hungry koi in the carp pond, enjoy a traditional cup of tea in the tea house or bring lunch to enjoy in these peaceful surroundings.

I've been living in Hiroshima since the mid 90's & still discovering new things to enjoy. I'm a big fan of both the old "wabi sabi" as well as modern and new designs, Japan offers both of these type of places to explore and enjoy. Even after many years here, I am still discovering surprising, fantastic and wacky things about this strange and wonderful land. I hope you enjoy your adventures around Japan- feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about traveling with kids, vegetarian dining or anything specific to Hiroshima.
