"Sagari-Fuji (hanging down wisteria flowers)," the crest of Kasuga Taisha Shrine is related to the Fujiwara clan, the flowers of Fuji (wisteria) are peerless. At Kokuu, when vermillion shrine halls, fresh green leaves and the purple wisteria flowers overlap, people find themselves at a loss for words to describe the beautiful vivid play of colors. A fawn was looking at us in the sacred precincts.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 3 (2021), Kokuu is from April 20 to May 5.
