Nakano Broadway is overflowing with stuff



So many collectibles, so many shops, and so many rental booths for the micro-sellers. Seeing so much stuff makes me want to edit my possessions at home.

Wisteria in apartment balcony, Harajuku

Leaving the JR Harajuko station on the way to a meeting with a green new media activist, I looked up at a concrete residential tower and saw this splendid wisteria flower explosion ten floors off the grounds. Many of the balconies have no plants, or just an odd plant or two. What amazes me about this balcony is the overflowing exuberance and the realization that this well cultivated show will only last a few weeks.
