We call this flower "Katakuri" in Japanese. Hakuba village symbolic flower. It looks at a bit down to get in bloom.
Dogteeth violet flowers close when the sun is not enough strong.
Judging from my observation, dogteeth violets are found somewhere at the bottom of the forest with rocky or stoney places more than at the ground full of sunshine. It might not be enough flexible to the circumstance, sometimes disappear when the circumstance changes.
