I can't believe that I've lived in the South Bay for the last 13 years and I've never visited Hakone Gardens! I'm a little ashamed of myself. Last Friday I decided to take a field trip to take some photos. I had a field day! The rain stopped for a bit as I started my journey, but the break didn't last long. It dumped buckets while I was trying to shoot, so I ran for the ancient tea house and waited for the skies to clear. Here are some of my favorites!
