A bamboo grove in Kencho-ji

The bamboo grove silhouetted against the slanting sun like a Chinese ink painting.

Bamboo trees sturdily stand upright and persist evergreen withstanding the harsh wind and snow of winter.

In China and Japan, Bamboo is regarded as one of the three auspicious plants (pine, bamboo and apricot) that bring good fortune.
