Winter-peony flowers in Tsurugaoka-hachimangu
Winter-peony flowers are artificially brought flowering forward in cold midwinter by the devoted care of gardeners.
Common peony flowers open in April and May in Japan.
The straw shelter which covers the peony plant is provided to protect it from the cold, wind and snow of this harsh season.
