Beginning of July, rainy season in Japan and it's also a season for hydrangeas.
Shifukuji Temple in Kitayama, Aoba Ward, Sendai is famous for them.
Place for washing hands, that you can see in many temples and shrines in Japan,
there were turtles in Yakushido Temple, but here was a dragon.
I could hear birds and insects' voices, waterdrop falling to the ground,
and also smell soil after raining.
I felt summer coming.
Interesting (and little bit weird) pattern made by pile of bamboos.
Looking bamboos, I remember about Sendai Tanabata Festival (which uses many bamboos)
It'll be held on beginning of next month in Sendai.
Trees,soil,flowers and rocks. Birds, bugs, water and rain.
Temple always makes me feel relaxed.
