January may be a bit too early to catch sakura season, but the flowers blooming at Kitano Tenmangu in Kyoto are still a sight for sore eyes.

The Shinto shrine houses 1,500 plum trees in 50 variations. Said to be loved by the God of Study, Sugawara No Michizane, the trees start to flower at around the end of January in fascinating color variations and scents.
