Where the Sky is Green

- / - / - / -

Tokyo is a densely populated urban area full of high buildings and crowded shopping centers. And the city’s inhabitants have more and more craving for nature. This is why rooftop gardening is becoming increasingly trendy in Tokyo. Some are ordinary gardens, others are community gardens that offer an opportunity for Tokyo inhabitants to grab some soil and feel that they are living in harmony with nature.
