Byakusin (Chinese juniper) tree: Kencho-ji

Byakusin (Chinese juniper) tree: Kencho-ji


Like an ascetic monk determined to solemnly practise silence, this old Byakusin tree continues standing still through all kinds of hardships in its life of 750 years.

The wind, sun and rain have heavily weathered the intricately-twisted trunk of this tree and deep green moss is compassionately covering the waved bare surface of this old trunk.
