One day while becoming lost in the maze of Fukuchi-in, I got a nice photo of a portion of the garden area. The green mounds, which you see in better detail in the right hand photo, are each one azalea bush. They are white-flowering azaleas, and they told us that when they are blooming, the mounds look like snow.


The monastery grounds were beautiful, as these three photographs attempt to show. The bamboo fence above protects the rock garden in the left photo. The top rail of the fence is a huge piece of tree bamboo that was split, then stuffed with straw, bent and tied. It was quite an impressive piece of work.

A curving bridge and a pond with lotus plants...what more could a photographer ask for? (lotus blossoms, that's what!) On the right is the belltower.
