It was opened in 1933, since then visitors can appreciate variety of seasonal alpine flowers whenever they visit.
There are some ponds in the botanical garden as well and they give some significant atmosphere to the garden. So,we can also see many aqua plants and flowers.
This time I realised about season's transition much more than I did at the last time.
Temperature was 14 degrees centigrade which made me feel much cooler than I expected, yet I recognised some fading summer plants like some afterglow.
Enko-so or Caltha palustris var. enkoso are almost starting to wither, but the golden yellow have not yet lost colour.
The tiny flower looks like a letter of Dai (大), so it derives its name, Daimonji-so, from｛Dai(大=big)monji(文字=letter)sou(草=herb)｝.
As for naming, Waremokou, Sanguisorba officinalis, has an interesting origin.
Ware(吾) means" I", mo(亦) is "also", and kou(紅) signifies red.
That is to say, it blooms showing "I'm in red, as well".
They are bathing in the clear autumn sun light and exhibit their understated colour.
