Photographer's Note

The Yasaka-no-to pagoda at Hokanji temple, was built by Shotoku Taishi. It is believed that he was instructed to do so by a dream vision of the Boddhisattva Nyorin. It was burnt to the ground and rebuilt on several occasions. It was last re-erected in 1440.

I took the shot on a gloomy day so I added the pink of some flowers to give the image some life.
The flowers are crape myrthl blossoms (thank you Mikio for clarifying that).
