Second floor, add-on garden on Koenji shopping street


I’ve long admired this second floor, add-on garden in the Look shopping street that connects Shin Koenji and Koenji stations. It’s such a simple and bold addition to an older building.

Roses spill out of control between house and sidewalk


I love this outpouring of pink roses extending from the second floor of the house out into the small street.

Lush second floor garden on Shin Koenji shopping street


On my favorite Koenji shopping street called “Look,” a shop selling feminine French homewares just built a lush second floor garden. By attaching two long and deep planters, they have transformed this older building with new life. I love the variety of plants, and the way the garden adds onto what is already there.

The shop is called Malto and they are online, too.
