Sometimes I feel nostalgia about that I consider one of the my favorite places in the world - especially during autumn, time when Japanese landscapes are especially beautiful. I decided to publish sequence of old photos I took at different years in new 1150 resolution - diversifying my photo stream a bit with completely different theme !

Image above is taken in Koko-en - beautiful landscape garden in the town called Himeji. It is not very old garden, actually it was created in 1992 by Kyoto university professor as his project of bringing several traditional styles into single place.
