The Karesansui garden of Meigetsu-in

The lively flowers of Satsuki (Rhododendron indicum) are now in full bloom in the Kare-sansui (dry landscape) garden of this temple.

The subtle charms of these flowers add a magical touch of tasteful elegance to this calm garden which expresses the intellectual world-view of Zen Buddhism.
