Haku-mokuren (Magnolia heptapeta) flowers in Engaku-ji
In Kita-kamakura, the short-lived lotus-like flowers of Haku-mokuren are in full-blown magnificently in the air of various gardens.
This Haku-mokuren tree is said to have been presented to
(1881-1936) who is one of the most celebrated Chinese novelists.
The name "Haku-mokuren" means "a tree which bears white lotus-like flowers."
