Photo of the Day: Stone Bridge

This bridge is called Engetsu-kyo (Stone Bridge) or full moon bridge in the Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens in Tokyo because a full moon is formed by joining the figure of this bridge to its reflection on the water. This picture was taken in the fall – there were lots of fallen leaves, so no reflection was visible.

  1. What? You mean you didn’t go there in the middle of the night, cleaned the leaves off the water’s surface and photographed the reflection? You’re such a slacker!😉

  2. Without even reading what you said, I looked at the pictures and thought it must be the bridge in Koishikawa Korakuen. Then I read what you said, and I was right. I remember this bridge.
