Wisteria Garden

This was taken at the Manyo Botanical Garden near Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara today. It is famous for its wisteria garden. Wisteria gives us nice scent. I love wisteria flowers and bees too.

Cherry Blossom IV

 The cherry blossom peak is over near here. Today's strong wind took lots of petals away.  We enjoyed snow-like cherry blossom falling. So beautiful.

Wedding Ceremony

I took this picture at the Shinto shrine in Kobe. You can see the preparation for the Shinto-style wedding ceremony. I'm sure a newlywed couple and their family members will appear soon.
