The bell tower of Jochi-ji temple

The bell tower and the "Byakusin" (Juniper) trees were exposed to the dazzling sunlight of the late afternoon.

A Byakusin tree is symbolic of the zen discipline and is found in every zen garden of Kamakura. This evergreen tree is believed to keep its greenness without withering and grow persistently without stopping.
