Paths.15

I call this path the Way of the Pines; we were leaving the Imperial Palace grounds in Tokyo and passed this well-manicure stand of pines. It seemed to me that the Japanese love pines, and also that they keep all their trees of all types pretty well trimmed and in order. We never saw the equivalent of a spreading Southern Live Oak or a sprawling Banyan growing in population centers of Japan. Anywhere.

They look very different to the pine trees here in Germany.

Typical of the very meticulous care they seem to put into everything! Nicely captured Glenn! ;-)

The pine trees remind me of bonsai pines ... so very well manicured.
It seems they do not grow very tall; is this because of the salt air?

A lovely shot of these manicured trees.
