In spite of concrete jungle, but sometimes, I can touch the nature feelings in Tokyo. Especially, before Spring season comes, I feel that strongly. Indeed, Tokyo is not warm in winter season. Few days ago, we met snowing! But, in winter season of Tokyo, it’s very dry. So, we can walk without an umbrella in most of days in winter and fell the atmosphere outside. For that reason, I walk around Tokyo, and I can notice small nature living things. This small flower is Japanese Ume tree. Ume is very popular flower shown as good luck. I think Sakura tree is the most famous flower as Spring season flower. But, Ume flower is also beloved since long time ago for Japanese people.This Ume tree is set in the small pot which is called Bonsai by Japanese people. But Ume tree has noble pride in spite of such a small tree.

東京では意外と自然に接する機会がある。特に冬にそう感じるのは偶然ではないだろう。というのも、東京はとても冬は乾いていて雨が降る日が少ないから、歩く機会も多くなる。そうなると自然と屋外の歩くスピードに合わせて屋外の景色が目につく。この梅の花もそんな中で出会った。日本人にとっては桜が一番なのかもしれないが、梅もなかなか愛でるべき存在だろう。桜よりもずっと昔から楽しまれてきた花だとも感じる。慎ましくも野性味溢れる梅の姿は盆栽という小さな空間であっても十分にその存在を凛とした佇まいで表現している。
