Hakone Gardens in Saratoga

We head to the hills above Saratoga to see the Hakone Japanese gardens. Parts of these gardens were used in the film "Memoirs of a Geisha".

The main pond at the gardens.

At the "Moon House" at the upper section of the gardens

Some interesting flowering trees, not sure what it is.

Toward the back section of the gardens is an extensive bamboo area with different varieties of towering bamboo.

The pond had a lot of turtles swimming around.

In and around the gardens.
