white camellia

This white camellia was not energetic in Tokyo.
Since coming to Kyoto, it has become more energetic and has started to bloom again this year.
The leaves are noticeably better.
It may have been in a place where the sun was too strong before…
I love this white camellia.
I’m glad that it bloomed at the right time to suit this work.

Japanese beauty

I think this photo captures a sense of playfulness that many Japanese today have lost.
My machiya is not a high-class one, but rather a commoner’s one,
but I think the bamboo decoration inside the room is a great rendition.
We must never lose this sensibility.
