Rain Water (Usui) / The 24 Solar Terms

Nara Gokoku Shrine is also known as the "Camellia Shrine." Ten thousand camellia trees with flowers of various colors and shapes bloom now. Many petals of red, white and light pink float on the surface of the pond, next to the shrine. These tiny, warm-colored boats hardly ever sink, even when cold raindrops hit them.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 4 (2022), Usui is from February 19 to March 5.
