Sakura blossoms in Tokei-ji temple
Sakura (Japanese Cherry) blossoms, which symbolize the climax of spring in Japan, have just begun to bloom vigorously and reign over the gardens of Kita-kamakura by their mesmeric charms.
Sakura will come into full bloom in a week or so and then, in a sudden gust of spring wind, its countless petals will gracefully flutter down in unison just like an unseasonable and fragrant snowstorm.
