Hakuryuen is not open to the public. William found this garden by chance. One day he was on the train heading towards the diffrent temple, and from its window he saw a shrine. He was curious, so he got off the train to check this place. He found out soon that it is a private garden, but it was “love at first sight” for William with this garden, and asked permission from the owner of this garden to take the picture of this premises.
