I think that I could spend entire days inside the Okayama Koraku-en garden, one of the “Three Great Gardens of Japan” (Nihon Sanmeien), searching for great places to relax, admiring the landscape and taking photos.
Here’s an amazing place, the Ryuten rest house, built in an architectural style rarely seen in Japan. Made of wood, the rest house is without walls, crossed by stream of water that runs through a series of carefully selected stones. This is where the garden’s owners used to relax… and this is what you can do also - it is allowed to enter inside, of course as long as you leave your shoes outside…
