Bamboo grove: Jochi-ji

In the bright light of midsummer, a bamboo grove becomes most beautiful and full of life.

The subtle composition of its rigid trunks and vivid green blades discloses the particular life force that only this brilliant season can bring to us.

The upright bamboo trunks, each of which grows almost one node per day in summer, are taking on various colors like wild flowers.

Seasons are passing swiftly like the wind while leaving their own invaluable but transient pictures on our minds.
