Shinkoji Temple's Tough Plum Trees

Shinkoin, a Shingon Buddhist temple in Noda City is noted for its plum trees which survived and thrived after a tornado ripped through the eastern part of Saitama Prefecture and into the northern edge of Chiba Prefecture. Despite heavy damage, the plums continue to bloom.
