Shofuso in the rain

22 06 2009

Shofuso (The Japanese House and Garden) is a small part of Fairmount Park in Philadelphia. I visited recently on a rainy day in June and was reminded of how beautiful and peaceful it can be with the steady drops and musty smell of damp tatami. I could have sat on the veranda for hours pretending I was back in Japan.
