Lotus flower and landscape in Japan photography
Lotus flower photographs taken in the area of Saitama Ken, to Hidaka which is of 1 hour from Tokyo by train. Hidaka (Japanese: 日高市) is a middle town within Saitama prefecture in the Kantō region. The Summer beauty brings the lotus flower from 07/01 to 08/31.
The lotus flower is revered in Japan for its ability to rise from the dirty, murky waters to bloom into a beautiful pure flower. Similar to Hanami, the Sakura celebration, in Japan, Kanrensetsu is lotus flower viewing which can be done in special lotus flower viewing boats in ponds or lakes, or by partaking in lotus viewing parties.
