Gurin to Sakura (Greens and Cherry Blossoms)

I think even if I were given unlimited time and unlimited funds
I'd still not reach the bottom of the Japans.

The deeper one looks, the more there is to find.

Just as Oda Nobunaga, warlord of one of the smallest and weakest provinces,
used his mind to conquer Japan,
this small island country uses its mind to resonate around the world.

Ultimate survival requires a trust in Nature.

On the list of the infinite,
today we learn the lesson of the cherry blossom and the greens of spring.

a hangover
is nothing as long as
there are cherry blossoms

old pond
a frog jumps into
the sound of water

where was the shower?
with umbrella in hand
the monk returns

flowers in this world
my wine is white
my rice dark

to live in this world
as Sogi says, is as long as
taking shelter in the rain
