Japan: plants in the neighbourhood
Every time I travel in Japan, I am always impressed by their plant's culture. Almost every house and building have their own mini 'courtyard'. They are combined by the various plants and styles but they are all very elegant and exquisite. It is like art, the plants are part of the architecture also the architecture is part of the 'planthood'. They are together show peace and balance in the perfect way.
I stayed in Harajuku this time, this is my place, I love all the shops :) I walked and walked, I didn't just enjoy the shopping but also enjoyed all the plants surrounding the shops! It is a vision!
Living with plants is harmonious! This is everyone's artwork and appreciation of mother nature. Japanese knows plants well :)
After the private areas, what about the general public areas in Japan? Well, I think this country loves plants and I do believe they think plant is a form of art that they need everyday and everywhere :)
I love Japanese style of flower arrangement! It is so elegant and spiritual!
Interesting buildings :)
I love plants, I believe plant is very healing, it comfort us.
Thanks Japan for showing me different kinds of beauty. It is full of inspiration and spirit.
