The residence of Toemon SANO (Uetoh Zohen) is the private residence located in Ukyo Ward, Kyoto City.

This is the private garden operated by Uetoh Zohen (植藤造園) company which is one of a gardeners in Kyoto.
And it is only open to the public on specific days in spring (Season of cherry blossoms).

It is nearer Arashiyama than the Kyoto city and famous for its cherry blossoms.

Toemon SANO (佐野藤右衛門) is one of the professional name of the gardener in Kyoto.
So, the patriarch of Uetoh Zohen inherits this name from generation to generation.

The 16th Toemon SANO is currently entrusted with the maintenance of the garden of Katsura Rikyu Imperial Villa and the garden of Shugaku-in Rikyu Imperial Villa.

In addition, he is also famous as the Sakuramori (The professional who protects a cherry tree).
The famous weeping cherry tree of the Maruyama Park (Kyoto Prefecture) is grew by him.

He is certainly the professional of gardener and cherry trees.

If you want to see weeping cherry trees slowly, please visit this garden.

So, I visited the residence of Toemon SANO (Uetoh Zohen) this time.
