Plum Trees in Tokyo – Mukojima-Hyakkaen Garden

Mukojima-Hyakkaen Garden is a small little garden, not far from the Tokyo Skytree.  It’s famous for it’s plum trees, so I went there for the first time recently.

The Japanese love to take photos of plum trees, not just cherry blossoms and autumn colours.
