Sacred lotus flowers in Kencho-ji

The gilded metal ornaments on the Chinese-style gate are softly glistening in the dazzling sun.

The lotus flowers, buds and leaves are standing high above the water surface of the Hasu-bachi (lotus-basin) beside the gate.

The beautiful composition of these elements presents the particular moment of wonder which can only occur in this season of the golden sun.
