walking trough the streets of Kamakura near Yokohama I spotted this red lampoon outside one of the many temples in this small town.
Kamakura is best known for its big Buddha statue but sports many beautiful temples to explore.

I remember seeing a tree like this in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney.I love the unusual shape and colour.
Format suits very well.

Beautiful view of the ornamental shrubs
Obviously very good with a good camera angle.
Have a nice day

Love that tree, one of the most magical things I notice about images from japan is the beautiful exotic trees, this one is a cracker. The red lampoon looks great against the lush green trees.

A lovely colour contrast with the lantern hanging nicely and seemingly peeking out from behind the brach. Good use of the vertical composition and you have indeed captured a slice of Japan perfectly
Thanks for sharing

I couldn't resist clicking to find out more about this image as it has an intriguing title. I wondered what had been lampooned. I realise now that you probably meant lantern. Lampoon means to satirize.(Hope you don't mind my ofgfering you this English lesson).
Nonetheless this is a strong image with the green and the red shouting to be seen. You have used the rule of thirds too for your composition.

Pleasing composition and expert use of complementary colours: red and green.
This particular tree also caught my attention 3 years ago and I took a photo but it is not as good as yours.
Have a nice day!

Interesting picture, with beautiful colors and seems to by very typical of Japan, not only for the letters but also for the tree. Wonderful composition! Good job!

nice composition with the tree and the look through the door to the garden, the lantern adds color and more info.
