Moss in Toke-ji

The ray of sunlight coming in through the grove is softly shining on the green moss typical of this season, which is commonly called "Toranoo-goke" in Japan.

This strange name "Toranoo-goke" means "moss like a tiger's tail" because the shape of this moss looks like a tiger's tail.

A vivid red leaf, which is lying on this moss accidentally, is enhancing the beauty of the fresh greenness peculiar to this season.
