（Sankeien, Naka-ku, Yokohama）［Early morning lotus viewing］
The founder of the Sankeien, Sankei Hara (his real name is Tomitaro Hana), had an abiding love for lotus flowers, which bloom beautifully in spite of being in pools of mud. In the heat of summer, the best time to cool off is early morning. This is a great opportunity to see the newly bloomed lotus flowers. There are special events like a lotus “shower” and tending to the plants -- something for young and old alike.
