Photographer's Note

Matsu (Japanese Pine Tree)
Green throughout the year, the pine tree symbolizes youth and longevity and is used as decorative plant in most Japanese gardens. Pine trees are also very popular for bonsai. Its the five most popular plant found in Japan apart from Ume (plum), Sakura (cherry blossum), Momiji (Maple) and Take (Bamboo).
************************************************

This pine tree near Otemachi train station (5 mins walk from the imperial palace) provided the much needed shade in the hot summer of 40 degrees celsius!
