Private Garden - In Kurume's suburb, in Kusano-machi

Let's continue our visits in Kurume and its surroundings.
You can walk to Kusano-Machi and discover, in individual gardens, very old camellias. Here is a page dedicated to these magnificent private gardens. Let's start with the one where we admired a 'Masayoshi' camellia aged of about 300 years... that we present below. All of these remarkable camellias gardens have a sign, giving their name and age.






Its measurements are indicated on the sign,
the girth is 120 cm (47,25 inches)...
