Bridges at Shurakuen Garden Tsuyama

 


The Shurakuen garden in Tsuyama is an Edo-period stroll-type garden that is dominated by water.


As such there are numerous bridges across narrow sections, though none of the classic vermillion bridges or Chinese style "drum" bridges found at many gardens.


This is the smallest bridge there.....


And this kind of walkway is fairly common in many traditional japanese gardens....


But most of the bridges were quite rudimentary, wooden structures....


Though these are not.....


many of these bridges were covered in earth......


As you can see, Water Lillies dominate the garden...... water Lillies here on this link, and more general views of the garden on this link.

  1. Is it possible to walk across any of the earth-covered bridges, or are they all off-limits to the general public?
