Tokyo has a very unique vegetal life. Parks and gardens are carefully organized according to seasonality, are maintained by highly skilled gardeners. But in the past, not so long ago, people used to have small gardens and planted a few trees. The price of land became too expansive for this kind of luxury I guess, and except in some high end areas, you won’t see so many private gardens anymore. But here and there in old areas, remnants of this past provide spectacular views such as this orange tree (probably one of those superb japanese hybrid ones) growing close to an old house, in a very “concrete” environment.
