The Long Gate of the Black Pine
It is a Japanese Black Pine (Kuromatsu) pruned very neatly.
It lengthens only the bottom branch towards the right side.
And it is supported a long branch with a prop of the bamboo.
Time of dozens of years and careful care are necessary till it become this form. The root surrounds straw to prevent cold.
The tree of the right side is a shidare-zakura.
When it is spring, backed by the blue sky, We can watch green and pink costarring.
