More Marunouchi Gardens

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on November 16, 2010

More photos from the garden exhibition at Marunouchi’s Nakadori. For some reason some of the gardens featured more or less hidden handbags, I guessed this was some sort of sponsorship but if so, for what brand(s) I have no idea. One thing that several of the garden designers did well was moss, which is not surprising seeing as Japan is pretty much covered in moss. If you ever go to Tokyo and the famous temples there, make sure to check out the great moss collections they have! Some temples even make a point of showcasing their best moss. More photos to come later in the week, but for now, enjoy!

Garden Exhibition at Marunouchi

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on November 15, 2010

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!
