So anyway I when to Shofuso Japanese Tea House the other day in philly and took some really great pictures. Well I think they are great, I'm not a photographer so don't shoot me.
The Tea House is a really beautiful place full of flowers especially cherry blossoms. From what I know about the tea house it was originally in Japan then was transported to Philadelphia in the 50s and is now maintained but the Philadelphia Horticultural Society. The pictures of the horse stable are of a stable in Fairmount Park. I guess that doesn't explain much because fairmount park is actually a combination of multiple parks in and around the city, you could say Philadelphia is inside Fairmount park hehe.
Places in Fairmount Park like the tea house or the parkway is like our Central Park. Let me explain, New Yorkers that are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city go to Central Park to enjoy the calm of nature. Fairmount Park is like that for Philadelphians. We go bike riding along the parkway or attend the annual Cherry Blossom Festival at the Tea House. It's our way of escaping the clutter of the city and just enjoy the weather, which today was 82F. So if you are ever in Philly try pulling yourself away from shopping on Walnut St, catching a play the Kimmel Center, or visiting the Art Museum and check out the nature of Philadelphia.
