[10-17-08] Hakone Gardens

Last (last) week, we visited Hakone Gardens in Saratoga. Because the driveway basically involves reversing up a 30 degree incline, we missed the entrance the first time around and ended up driving a mile or ten into the boonies. I knew we were lost when my GPS STOPPED DISPLAYING OTHER ROADS.

Supposedly, scenes from "Memoirs of a Geisha" were filmed in the gardens. It's a charming little stop (give it about 30 mins. to an hour) and an unexpected find in the wilds of northern California.

Oh, and don't go behind the main building. There be wasps afoot.

As always, higher res photos can be found in my flickr set.
