Hakuunboku (Styrax obassia) flowers in Jochi-ji

The Japanese name "Hakuunboku" means a tree which bears white-cloud-like flowers.

This plant is also called "fragrant snowbell" because its flowers look like snow-white bells and emit strong sweet fragrances.

Countless bumblebees were buzzing busily from flower to flower in a rapture of delight.
