The summer camellia, also known as the "flower of the sala tree" that appears in "The Tale of the Heike," is in full bloom at Torin-in Temple (Ukyo Ward, Kyoto City), a subtemple of Myoshinji Temple, and a special public event, "Admiring the Sala Flowers," began on June 10, 2024. White flowers were scattered here and there in the moss-covered garden of the Zen temple, and worshippers were pondering the life of the flower.
