Enokorogusa (Orthetrum albistylum speciosum)grass in Urigayatsu valley

The golden yellow spikes of Enokorogusa, which means dogtail-grass, are swaying to the soft breeze in the brilliant sunlight of early autumn.

Although these spikes usually herald the advent of pleasant autumn, the intense heat is still remaining behind persistently without knowing the end of late summer.

Soon the seasons turns as always and crisp autumn arrives once more at the gardens of zen to bring elegant and delicate beauties peculiar to this harvest season.
