Osawa-no Ike Pond in Spring Colors

March 25, 2018

In the beginning of the Heian (平安) period, the Emperor Saga (嵯峨天王) built his villa in this land of Saga (嵯峨). On the vast premises of the villa, the emperor landscaped a beautiful pond which was the reproduction of the Doteiko (洞庭湖, lake Dòngtíng hú) lake in China, and now the pond is called as "Osawa-no-ike (大沢池)". In the old times, the Heian court nobles used to enjoy the pleasure of Otsukimi (お月見, moon viewing) on lovely boats floating on the pond.

Along the bank of this scenic pond, various kinds of spring flowers are now blooming. When I visited there, Higanzakura (彼岸桜, early flowering cherry tree) and Sansyu (山茱萸, Japanese cornelian-cherry), were blooming in pink and yellow. They were very pretty and the air was filled with spring scent.
