Asuka 5 岡寺
I walked up a steep slope, reached at Okadera.
It was famous for SHakunage, rhododendrons.
Botan (peony) with parasols welcomed me.
They were bigger than Botans I had seen at Hasedera in February.
They were so gorgeous.
There were lots of Shakunages behind the main temple.
They were so beautiful. They reminded me of Shakunages which I had seen on the mountains of Akita, Rishiri and so on.
