In the Grounds of Senso-ji

In Autumn in Japan there are often lovely floral displays. How it was possible to make this display and have all the flowers in full bloom at the same time I do not know. The Five Storied Pagoda was built in 942 but has, of course, been rebuilt since then. First in 1648 and then in 1973 as it had been burnt to the ground during the war in 1945.
