Kyoto Gardens and its Koi Carp!
When it comes to gardens and parks, London has plenty of them for people to relax and enjoy. One of such beautiful garden has been hiding inside London’s Holland Park. The Kyoto Gardens offers a unique, Japanese-style landscape with a lot of colourful koi carps and other small fishes.
I was lucky to find a sunny day to escape to this beautiful park. Even from the entrance, it had a very positive and relaxing vibe to it. A small trek to the garden lawn was a great opportunity to climb a few tree logs and click random selfies within the soothing green ambience created by the shade of long tree branches.
Strolling my way, I reached a point which read something in Japanese and I knew I was going in the right direction. The next moment was nothing less than a picturesque landscape which completely takes you by surprise.
The lush green grass with colourful blossom trees and a mesmerising waterfall with colourful koi carp fishes underneath, was an ideal photo moment and I made sure I clicked plenty of them.
The garden is also famous for its peacocks whom you can hear as soon as you enter the premises with their loud scream. I was lucky to find one slowly crawling towards me while I was clicking some lovely flowers. The peacock was very kind enough to give me and other visitors ample opportunity for clicking its pictures and literally gave some brilliant poses.
Although it was shining bright that day, it was still quite cold (the unpredictable London weather!) and so I couldn't resist visiting the local park cafe right next to the gardens to warm myself up by sipping a cup of coffee with Victoria sponge cake to the side...yum!
It was a perfect afternoon, one of the most relaxing ones for me in a while with a sense of freshness and tranquilness by its end.
And oh, did I tell you I got to touch a squirrel? Yay :)
