Very beautiful flowery tree! The temple must require a believer's eye to see beyond the tree of life,i.e, cycle of life :-)

The flower of sakura is ephemeral, urging people to make hay while the sun shines. The temple is a place for meditation, thinking about the origin of life, the every deeds we havedone and will do as we live each day, and the eternal destination that everyone of us will go one day aswe finish our sojourn on earth.

I did not think about any of the above when I was taking the picture. I was just seizing my minutes like the blossoming sakura flowers did. I just had4 days to spare during my visit there last year.

...And ironically, only after the last flower on the tree has fallen, people will be able to see the temple!
