Here is a temple in a mountain that has built quietly in the mountainous district in Tokyo suburbs.
The full-blown flower received cherry blossoms, rape blossoms, and the azalea, etc. Twenty old stone Buddist images stood in a row demurely before a gate in the temple of the Rinzai sect that had been opened for about 600 years ago.
Surroundings are quiet places where Aki river in the clear stream flows to the valley in the mountainous district.
This photograph is the one taken in the spring three years ago.

Merveilleuse explosion de fleurs printanières présentée dans une excellente composition. Le point de vue était bien choisi avec les statues en avant-plan et les couleurs sont superbes. Une photo agréable à regarder.
Toutes mes félicitations et Joyeuses Pâques,

This photo is very unique and surprisingly harmonious in proportions of colors , my respect. Sharpness flowering trees in the background and blur the stones on the front give the composition complete. I want repeat "thank you" all the time and put under this photo 100 critic.
With best regards,

The tree with the pink flowers look very distinguished in the middle of the white flowers, well framed by the fence in a great composition. Good work, congratulations!

Good Morning Mikio,
Japanese gardens really are a delight.
This spring scene is fresh and beautifully composed, with its diagonal lead and its overlapping boughs of differing colours.
My warm regards,

very nice patchwork of sppring colors, but the statues at the front are out of focus.

Hi dear Mikio. I was sorry in a way to be in Japan at a time when the cherry blossoms were not in flower (although Autumn was also very special.)This is a beautiful photo full of colour, fine details and a clever POV where the ancient, moss covered statues create a wonderful contrast for the delicate blossoms. My compliments. Klaudio.
