Yamamomo tree near Tokyo Metropolitan Government building


Commonly called Japanese bayberry, this fruit tree near Tokyo Metropolitan Government was full of yamamomo fruits. This tree is apparently often planted along roads and in parks. I love how the fruit is at once edible and very ornamental.


  1. The yamamomo trees are fruiting again this week, foraged lots today around Ryogoku. I’m surprised they’re not snaffled up by the locals, they’re just falling off and going to waste.
