Today I introduce another stunning garden of a B&B we stayed last month.
It is located in a wood on a highland south of Mt. Yatsugatake near Mt. Fuji.
The garden is quite natural-style.

The 'Pollyanna' opened in 1981.  This is a kind of B&B style hotel called 'pension' in Japanese.  They serve dinner as well as breakfast.  They have about ten rooms, almost of which has no bath or toilet.  The price is quite reasonable.
A iron man welcomed us.  

The entrance of the main cottage

The annex small cottage, where we stayed.  

The main cottage looks so nice.  

Cafe Cotton Weed is a restaurant, adjacent to the main cottage, where we took dinner and breakfast.  Color combination of trees are stunning.  

In the garden, many metal statues are exhibited quite naturally.

Different colors of foliage is very attractive.  

Beautiful borders with many beautiful flowers

So many beautiful white flowers of Benthamidia japonica.  The tree in our garden flowers much less than this.  

A very natural pond.  
 This garden was introduced in the Japanese gardening magazine in 2004.  I read this magazine at the Cafe Cotton Weed.  I read the history of this B&B and the garden, and was deeply impressed.  The owners are so friendly, and they told that their garden will be introduced in the next issue of the magazine, which will be published next week.

Japanese gardening magazine 'Bises' No.  32 (2004)

I want to visit there again in the future.
