Plants growing everywhere, people building shacks and hanging out on rooftops, narrow alleys.
Everywhere in Tokyo you see this evergreen hedge plant called kanamemochi (カナメモチ, or Photinia glabra). In spring, the new leaves are red. This year our balcony bush flowered for the first time. I highly recommend growing this bush anywhere in Tokyo. It requires very little care and can be shaped easily.
This parking lot palm tree has so few leaves yet so many flowers. No wonder the shuro palm tree spreads so easily in Tokyo.
