Japanese Plum Blossoms

Sojiji at Ibaraki, Osaka

This is a Japanese plum tree at Sojiji Temple in Ibaraki, Osaka.


It was very cold and snowy that day, but the beautiful plum blossoms soothed my heart.

It will be in full bloom soon.

This is another plum tree in the precincts of the temple.

The colors of the petals are bright and pretty.

Sojiji is a temple with a very open minded atmosphere.

The precincts of the temple are spacious, and the air is always fresh and invigorating.

There are many turtles and carp in the pond. (Turtles are hibernating.) I love the pond.

This temple is part of 高野山真言宗(Koyasan Shingon sect). For this reason, 空海様(Kukai-sama) is enshrined here.

The principal image is 千手観音菩薩様(Senju-Kannon-Bosatsu-sama).

I had a wonderful time.

Thank you very much.
