Revisit to Showa Kinen Koen

The word ‘Déjà vu’ might be an exaggerated expression of feelings that aroused when reached at Tachikawa again. It was a revisit to Showa kinen koen to observe the autumn leaves. Indeed, this time the looks of Showa kinen koen were different from the one we observed in the last spring.

Personally for me and for this blog, the Showa Kinen Koen played a crucial role in the preceding months. Tachikawa was the place where I was compelled to put a stop to the blog writing almost more than six months from now. It was the peak of spring in Tachikawa during the last weeks of April. An unexpected impairment, followed by the doctor’s advise kept me away from sitting long hours in front of computer. As you know well, blogging needs a lot dedication and I was unable to commit that loyalty to this blog. Last spring, we walked a lot inside Showa Kinen Koen.

For sure, I must express my sincere apology for not able to reply to the queries that I received. I could read some of the comments in this blog and those appeared in expat-blog. Frankly I do admit my failure to do justice to those comments.

With the autumn season presents itself to the nature and people charming and pleasant memoirs, I feel as if the mind is filled with renewed energy. It took almost a season to come out of life’s tremor.

Now the blog is back! It might be a coincidence that I do restart blogging from where I stopped – Showa Kinen Koen. The life is all about coincidences. Some of us believe in super-natural powers. We like to believe those coincidences as miracles of God. If it gives a sort of comfort, it is fine. For a few, unwilling to accept those super natural miracles, the life is a flow of repetitive experiences.

Decision to revisit Tachikawa was sudden followed by a call from family friends who were already reached at Showa Kinen Koen. I had just finished the Japanese language class and was heading home for the lunch. Recently, I have been attending the Japanese language classes taken by Mana Suzuki-san who conducts classes at Komatsugawa. I may write more about these new Japanese lessons separately.

We got around one hour to walk around Showa Kinen Koen. It was not enough to imbibe the nature’s marvels. In the rush, we forgot to take the camera too. The photos in this blog are received from friends. The bonsai tree leaves were also turned to red, pink and yellow.

The Japanese garden was especially beautiful and was the only place we could visit and take photos during this visit. For those who plan to visit Showa Kinen Park the area guide will be useful to plan before starting from home. Showa Kinen Koen Area Guide

Showa Kinen Park needs a full day. For those who enjoy the nature, it needs many days and still a revisit will give a different experience. We were also literally surprised to see another face of Showa Kinen Koen during the autumn season. During spring, the garden was clad with flowers, Tulips to say more specifically.

(Another masterpiece from Jayaraj’s camera)The nature refills the life’s energy or in other sense the nature has abundant energy that any living being can absorb. Showa Kinen Koen is one of such beautiful part of nature where we can take renewed energy and fill the mind with tranquilizing landscapes.
