Meguro Shizen Kyoikuen - Meguro Nature Study Park

 Yesterday autumn weather was optimal. We took the opportunity to go to Meguro where there is a amazing primal forest about half way between Shirakane Takanawa and Meguro stations.. It doesn't feature on tourist lists of Tokyo for some reason, but it's beautiful - the Meiji Shrine outer garden is the only place that is in anyway comparable in Tokyo.  Walking around there yesterday was like being in a Renoir autumn painting. Soft light, yellowing brown leaves, bridges over ponds, aging pines - a lovely day out.

In my eagerness to get back under google's 1 GB limit on photos, I have accidentally deleted photos - which I will try to relocate.

Sometimes the human wildlife is more interesting than
the non human varieties...

We finished off out trip to the area with soba at a
traditional little shop on Gaien Nishi Dori, just around the corner from the park.
