The look, and looks, of an old school Tokyo shopping street.
Some sights are unexpected to say the least, and yet this Shinjuku street scene sums up certain aspects of Tokyo surprisingly well.
Tokyo’s concrete environment and incredible urban density means any vegetation that’s not carefully cultivated has a tough time to do little more than just exist. Or at least that’s what you’d think, anyway. Mother Nature, on the other hand, often has very different ideas, and when spring begins its transition into summer, some plants genuinely thrive rather than merely survive.
