Chiyoda's Silliest Pine

24th April 2014 • ArchivePrevious PostNext Post

This is one of my favorite pines in all of Japan. It's on the main road through Chiyoda, and acts as a sort of pergola, sort of shading/roof in the tradition of the monkaburi. It makes me laugh everytime I see it - but look at the intricacy and detail in the bottom picture. Extraordinary.
