…then arrives the season of wisteria, when spring reaches its finest hour. The air in the garden is filled with the abundant scent of raceme. As opposed to the gaiety and motion that cherry blossoms signify, wisteria is the flower of elegance and silence. The poet Mizuhara Shuoshi wrote:

Awakened by the gentle breeze…
the scent of wisteria!"
