Today is part of our Tokyo Cityscapes series. Although new skyscrapers are constantly being built, work is also underway to make Tokyo a sustainable city. Buildings are surrounded by green, forests planted near communal housing, and the city is getting a re-design through plants. Landscape architect Tatsuya Hiraga, and gardener and landscape designer Michio Tase both explore the new cityscape of Tokyo as it evolves a new co-existence with plant life.
