This post is a continuation earlier parts of “Kyoto’s Amazing Haradanien Garden”, where in part one I introduced the location, and in part two I explained how it's wonderful even though it's quite crowded.

Folks wanting a couple shot would usually ask someone walking by to take it, but the couple above use a timer. (I tried to get the camera in focus and missed it badly, but I still like the vibe of the shot.)

As I mentioned in part two, the layout of the garden — criss-crossing paths wandering on a hillside punctuated by dense foliage — makes photos like the one above possible depsite quite heavy crowds. It's just wonderful.

Let's have a wigglegram.... an interactive photo that you can wiggle with your mouse:

写真の上をマウスであちこちにゆっくり動かすと「3D」な感じが出ます。

This gives a sense, I hope, of the feel of at least one part of the garden. This is the second wigglegram I've posted from this site, the first having been this wigglegram of Damien and Paul right after my first visit. (There's one more lower down on this post.)

Much more of this wonderful place yet to share.

Wonderful post, Jeffrey. This looks like such a beautiful place. And I enjoy the wigglegrams. –Ed

The gardens look kind of amazing, but it’s hard to tell because the main subject in your posts seems to be people within the gardens taking photographs! This is the third post in the series, and I still have very little sense of what the gardens actually look like. I do have a sense, however, that they are covered in people with cameras….

Dear Jeff, The Haradaien series has fascinated me. Thank you so much for the infomative photos, and the wigglegrams.
