These flowers belong to Hibiscus genus. It is called 酔芙蓉 Sui-Fuyo in Japan. The prefix 酔 Sui means "drunken". So, the name of this flower is Drunken Hibiscus. Why drunken ? Well, it blooms in the morning with the color of white as shown in this photo. It turns to pink gradually in the same day. The color changes as if a drinking man changes the color of his face.
These flowers in this photo are white, before drunk. I'll show you the one after drunk tomorrow.
