Tea house garden in Hikone, Shiga. This cozy Japanese garden has tea houses. It is directly behind Hikone Castle in Shiga Prefecture. Hikone Castle was the home of Naosuke Ii, the high official who met Commodore Perry.
Today, this garden still looks pretty much the same. It was even used for a garden scene in the TV mini-series "Shogun." [url=http://photoguide.jp/pix/thumbnails.php?album=162]See photos here.[/url]
