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 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.
Bamboo on the snow ground
The medicinal plant garden after which Oyaku-en was named is also under snow.
The silence in the garden
