Madonna Blue
This is a picture of Jyodo-daira, where, some say, stars are seen most clearly in Japan.
I have been there many times since I was a high school student.
Some years ago, when I was walking from Azuma-lodge to the astronomic observatory under the full moon, I happened to see a great many beautiful flowers of gentians in full bloom fantastically shining in the splendid moonlight.
I have never forgot the countless cups of madonna-blue, which I painted on the canvas of my memory.
