Tokyo has a lot of gardens and parks, and most of them are nice and big with lots to see. For example,  Shinjuku Gyoen is a place we are lucky enough to enjoy for the second time, once in the Spring back in 2007 and another time during this trip during in fall. It was nice to see how this park changes in colour in different seasons and I really enjoyed seeing the red leaves in this park.

Autumn is my favourite season, it is colourful, crisp and the sunlight casts lots of shadows because of the angle the sun is in the sky. It certainly makes taking pictures more interesting. We went to Queen Elizabeth Park and I was testing out the Sony Alpha NEX-5N camera with the kit lens.

Once again, we are at our local Minoru Park taking a leisure walk to enjoy the Autumn sun and the beautiful weather.  It was mild and sunny, and one of the best afternoons to take pictures at the Minoru Park.

I have been to a Japanese Garden when I was visiting Tokyo.  This time, I visited a Chinese Garden in Vancouver.  The Sun Yat-Sen Park and Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden are two parts of the same facility in the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver in China Town.  The Park is free for admission.  The Classical Chinese Garden costs $10 per admission.

Let me take you for a tour.

Sun Yat-Sen Park by you.

This is the main entrance of the Chinese Cultural Centre.  What a contrast between the Chinese entrance and the Western hotel behind it!  Try 3D visualization using Google Street View of the front entrance.
