Blossoms of "Nanten" (Nandina domestica)
This plant has been considered as a lucky plant in Japan, and maybe almost every house has it in a garden. In fall, this plant has a lot of red fruits (not edible, but usable as a medicine for coughing) where those blossoms are in this picture. "Nanten" leaves are very usuful and important for Japanese cuisine in order to decorate the food.
