A big snow statue of dog in front of the entrance. Is this a guardian dog?

 

 

How does Japanese garden look like in snowing season? It’s silent and beautiful although it’s not colorful.

   

 

A stream

   

 

A half frozen pond

   

 

Three spotbill ducks (Anas zonorhyncha) in the pond

 

 

A thatched Ochaya-goten House covered with snow

   

 

The sun was also vailed by the cloud.

 

An arbor

 

Bamboo on the snow ground

 

 

The medicinal plant garden after which Oyaku-en was named is also under snow.

 

 

The silence in the garden

   

 

See you!

 

End.
