Posting this a bit late (been busy with new puppy), but I wanted to share a tweet I saw from the famous Kasuga Grand Shrine, one of the holiest Shinto shrines in Japan.

With all the attention on cherry blossoms and such, it’s sometimes easy to forget other flowers in bloom. The wisteria (fuji 藤 in Japanese), is a popular flower in Japan, and also the family crest used in the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist tradition.
