Sankein Early Morning Kanrenkai

Sankeien Gaien Lotus Pond 
(Please note that this page was created using Google's automatic translation service and understand that because of this, its translation may not necessarily be accurate.)

The lotus flower begins to open slowly at dawn and reaches its best time around 7 am. It starts closing again around 9 o'clock and closes completely around noon. It is likened to an excellent human resource who emerged from the world because it blooms pure flowers from the mud, and was called the saint's flower in India and the prince's flower in China. It is a flower that Sankein Hara, the founder of Sankein, especially liked.
In this season when the summer season is approaching, the park will open at 6 am and you will be familiar with the lotus.
