Mitsumata (Edgeworthia chrysantha) and Ume ( (Prunus mume) flowers in Tokei-ji

The enchanting colors of flowers are returning gradually to the gardens of Zen, together with the delightful spring warbles of birds among the leafy trees and the pleasant fragrances in the balmy breeze.

Every flower blooms and scatters for letting us wake up to the transient but precious beauty of our world.

In Buddhist culture, a flower symbolizes the infinite mercy and wisdom of Buddha.
