Susuki (Japanese pampas grass) in Jyochi-ji temple

The crystal clear sunlight of late autumn can vividly reveal every beauty of nature. The shining spikes of "Susuki" grass are swaying peacefully in a mellow wind in front of the bell tower of this quiet temple.

"Susuki" is one of the "Aki-no-nanakusa" (seven typical kinds of autumnal plants in Japan) which are the traditional subjects for Japanese classic fine arts.
