A peaceful spring breeze brought with it a delicate sweet fragrance of plum blossoms on that day. Kitano Tenman-gu Shrine has a large plum blossom garden with 50 varieties of plum and 1500 plum trees. Thick pink, light pink, greenish-white, or clear white. A great variety of colors and sizes of flowers were blooming, competing with one another for our attention. Visitors enjoyed a pleasant walk amongst the trees. Cattle, which represent messengers of the enshrined deity that you will see here and there in the shrine grounds also looked very happy under the beautiful plum blossoms.
