Now, "Nanjya-Monjya" trees in "Oka-no-Minato Jinjya"(岡湊神社) shrine in Ashiya-machi(芦屋町) are in full bloom.

The name, "Nanjya-Monjya" is very unique, I think. Certainly, its flower are very unique and beautiful.

I also like the name "Nanjya-Monjya." It sounds like a word from a dialect of Japanese or something.

"Nanja-Monjya" is not a general Japanese word. But, almost all people can imagine something strange, curious and funny from the word, I think.
