culture shock

mimurotoji2 Have you ever wondered why there are flowers blooming year round at temples around Japan?

I hadn't thought about it much until I saw a story on the news.

daigoji3 The priest mentioned that the reason most temples have flowers blooming year round is to replicate the Pure Land of Buddhism.

I thought that was pretty cool.

zuishinin2 Next time I go to a temple, I'll appreciate the flowers a little more.
