On November 1, 2012 four of us took the train to Mitaka-eki and then a bus to Jindaiji to see the temple and then the park, Jindai botanical garden and greenhouse nearby.
Already November and still the roses were blooming beautifully along with dahlia and other flowers. We were still in Tokyo enjoying one of the many treasures it has to offer. And when there are people inevitably there is a lane dedicated to serving up a variety of treats from multiple open fronted stalls.
