Okuma Garden in autumnFri, Oct 9, 2015
From Okuma Garden: October 2 and 6, 2015
It is now October and our days have grown cooler. It seems that autumn has finally arrived and as we enter the new semester, campus is once again bustling with student activity.
Autumn has also arrived at Okuma Garden next to Okuma Auditorium and it is harvesting season for the mini paddy field (commonly referred to as Waseden) adjacent to the Garden.
The Garden is home to a commemorative plaque built in 2010 by the Alumni Association to celebrate Waseda’s 125th anniversary. Inscribed with the words “Together into the world, Together into the future,” the plaque celebrates the legacy of the University and its founder Okuma Shigenobu.
As we enter deeper into autumn and the leaves show their colors, how about going for a walk in the scenic Okuma Garden?
