Yama Fuji Wisteria

Making joyful the buzzing bumblebees!

Its gentle sweetness carried on the breeze.

Soft purple whispering among the greens.

Wisteria floribunda    藤       Noda fuji (野田藤)

There are a few kinds of Wisteria growing wild in Japan. Most wild Wisteria bloom from late April to the middle of May.


These lovely Wisteria were in the western area of Koyasan.



100 meters away the wind has carried the lightly sweet fragrance to where I’m standing.

As I get closer its joyful presence is hinted at by the buzz of  bumblebees.

Floribunda wraps in a clockwise direction.

Brachybotrys twines in  counterclockwise direction.
