a roadful of bush

Most houses in Osaka have roads instead of front gardens.

It beggars belief the number of times I've seen bleary-eyed people leaving their house in the morning, full of the joys of spring, only to be mown down by a passing bus.

To spruce the place up a bit, some residents place a small plant pot in front of their abode.

However, one person has taken this to the extreme, opting to import a portion of the Amazon jungle instead.


Two small plant pots. Pleasantly surprising.

Are you sure it's all Amazonian? It looks a bit Columbian to me ;)

hi

i've been reading your blog, but this is the first time i'm commenting. I love being in Osaka. I've been there 5 times. were the pics taken in Shin Osaka area?? i'm just wondering if ppl from other part of Osaka grow trees like that too. I don't see that in Kobe or Kyoto.
Keep updating us on Osaka....I miss it so much

I bet it's ground zero. It's going to grow over the whole of Osaka.
