Yatsude (Fatsia japonica) in Engaku-ji temple
I sensed a strong and calm life force when I saw the twisted sturdy roots of the large tree and the partly yellowed leaves of Yatsude.
"Yatsude" means "a shrub having eight-fingered leaves" and the shapes of its leaves remind me of the small hands of lively children.
