Attendants at work keeping Kenrokuen looking beautiful.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

This is superbly composed with the branches that bring a natural frame plus the woman in distance, and the guys sweeping in the heart of the image - bravo*

Are those brooms used to follow tradition or because they work best?

@Twelvebit: They're pretty much standard, you'll see them everywhere in Japan.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

They seem to be cleaning the stones in the water. Interesting. A very fine image.

@Steve Rice: Cheers Steve. Yes; something like that. I think they may have been collecting weed if I remember rightly...?

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Not easy to keep the gardens and parks of Japan in pristine shape. But...they do it with such dedication that it's worth saying..HAT OFF!
