We are scheming to go see the Imperial Palace gardens on the 2nd of January. From what I have heard there are only 2 days a year when the gardens are open to foreigners to explore on their own. What does this picture have to do with the Imperial Palace or gardens? Well I suppose water is useful in gardens, but I kind of like the shot and it is taken across the street from the Imperial Palace. Good enough?
In other news.. I ordered a Nikon D80 which shipped out this Monday stateside time. This wait is going to be worse than Christmas when I was a little kid!
