Kiyosumi Garden

Kiyosumi Garden is a Japanese garden that was created in the Meiji period (1868-1912) by rearranging a daimyo's mansion from the Edo period (1603-1868). It is a "kaiyushiki chikuyama fountain garden," a type of Japanese garden in which a large pond is surrounded by small mountains, plants, trees, and stones. This type of garden is often seen in Japanese gardens.
The garden can be enjoyed in every season of the year, including spring, summer, fall, and winter.
In late November, the trees in the garden change color and beautiful autumn leaves can be seen.
This is a scene of preparation for winter. This is a guard to protect the pine trees from snow and to prevent them from falling over." It is called "Matsukasa". It makes for a quaint winter scene.
