I hope you aren’t getting tired of all these gardens! There were so many of them and I don’t want you to miss any of them! As you know, my tiny flat here in Tokyo doesn’t allow me to have pets or gardens and there’s hardly any place to put potted plants, so instead of investing in a Bonzai tree I just take as many chances as I can to visit beautiful gardens around Tokyo. Coming across this garden festival was a great way to get a little green in a crowded lunch hour! Sorry about the poor quality though, couldn’t ask my colleagues to hold up while I took photos. Enjoy!
I’m a little late with this post, but I still wanted to share this with you! Last month there was a pretty neat Gardening Exhibition in Tokyo’s financial heart, Marunouchi and the Nakadori (Center Street) whichi is like the Wall Street of Japan. Nakadori is a goregous and fashionable street even on the worts of days but these temporary mini-gardens really made it shine! Along the streets different artists and designers were asked to create their own unique garden spaces, and they came up with a few really interesting ones! Obviously, I’m saving the best for last. There’s quite a few photos in this, so I’ll space it out over a couple of week. If last week’s Tokyobling was heavy on military and uniforms, this week will be greener than ever!
Oh, and sorry about the lousy/boring shots, I took this while walking, on my way to a business meeting and I wasn’t about to ask my colleagues to hang around while I set up my camera! The Nikon D3s is a great camera but sometimes I wish I had something smaller and quicker. Anyway, enjoy!
