When I went to UJi River side, and I walked watching the plain color flower on the tree.
There were many yellow flowers at both road side of the approach to the main gate of the temple. It was the entrance of the Eishinji temple. Last weekend, The Japanese rose tempted me to go to the Eishinji temple again. It seemed that the yellow flower was not powerful than last year; I guessed that the full bloom was delayed by the cold weather condition on this year. However, it gave me an excellent aroma of spring.
As I went through the main gate, I noticed that there was a different atmosphere than regular year. Several small groups of a visitor were there, was the reason. And each guide was explaining for the group member about the temple and the garden. The guide seemed the volunteer. When I looked over the garden, the voice of the guide came into my ears. It appeared that the garden had many rare plants. After I heard the explanation, it seemed a small botanical garden.
This time, let me introduce about curious flower. I attached the photograph below. There were three small projections on the leaf, it was the female flower. So the tree was the female. And one small projection on the leaf, it was the mail flower, So the tree was the mail. There were the flowers on the leaf to my surprise. It was the mysterious flower, isn’t it? A name is “ 花筏”、pronunciation is Hanaikada. I guessed the leaf looks like a raft; probably it was named the flowers on the raft by ancient people. And it is the plant indigenous to Japan. I think, the name is really Japanese way of thinking. Just now we can see the flower, because it is the flower season. But usually it is difficult to understand it is the Hanaikada, it will seem normal tree. You should drop in to the temple, if you visit to UJi city of the Kyoto. And. The flower color is the green, it is not conspicuous. You have to check from near the tree.
