工房の外の歩道にトマトが育っていて、もうすぐ完熟しそうです。食べたいです。

These mid-summer tomatoes look so delicious. I like how this small workshop owner always grows spectacular sidewalk plants.

駅の途中にある小さな庭はいつの季節でも楽しいですが、そばの舗装の亀裂からシソが育っています。おいしそうです。

The four seasons micro garden I often pass on the way to the station has a new summer addition. Shiso is growing from a crack. Almost all the other plants are in pots, so I wonder if this was planted or just sprung up naturally. It looks delicious!

Ivy covers a parking tower in Kabukicho

パーキングタワーに広がる夏のツタが涼しい気分にしてくれます。厚く育っているので、何も生き物がいるかもしれません。歌舞伎町で見つけました。

Just looking at this parking tower covered in thick ivy makes me feel a little cooler. I wonder what creatures might be living inside.

Small corn field in Setagaya

世田谷の畑でトウモロコシが育っています。農大に行く途中は、住宅が多いです。

To get to Nodai, I bike along a long and straight road covering an old water pipe. Last time I saw this small corn field in Setagaya, surrounded by various types of dense housing.

Yamamomo tree near Tokyo Metropolitan Government building

ヤマモモというフルーツの味はどんなでしょうか。このきれいな実のなる木はよく公園と道路で育っています。

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.
