Nemichi Shire, a Japanese Shinto shrine located in the city of Seki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan, has become famous for its koi pond, which has been compared to the Water Lilies paintings of  19th century French impressionist painter Claude Monet. Monet’s famous Water Lilies series actually depicts the Japanese garden at his home in Giverny, France.
Koi ponds are designed to promote health and well being and also the growth of the koi, the Japanese Ornamental Carp.

  1. Nice. I just got back from my trip to Europe and saw Monet’s garden in Giverny, France and can appreciate your recent post much more than usual. Terrific pictures.
