Yama-zakura (Prunus jamasakura) blossoms in Engaku-ji

The hill at the back of the Shari-den (the hall of Buddha's bones) is decorated exquisitely with the snowy blossoms of wild cherry trees.

Soon their pure white petals will fall hastily with one accord like a snowstorm in the rustling spring wind without the decline of their pureness.
