>Citrus tachibana at right side
Citrus tachibana was planted at the right side of the palace, while sakura at the left side.
Now 平安神宮 Heian-Jingu has citrus tachibana at the right side.
You can see the tree here in the left side of the image.
You know, "right" means right of God (or Emperor). It is our left.
The fruits are so sour, you'd better not eat them.

Citrus fruits taste like winter. They are like small suns.

Beautiful composition . Right is left because the best side near the Emperor is to the left ?

@Mhelene: God (or Emperor) is in the house and facing the south. So his right is the west. We are in front of the house and facing the north. Right of God is the west, the west is our left. Have I answered your question ?

An eye-catching angle that you've captured this shot!! Interesting background information as well. I guess that means we will always know where the sour fruit will be.
