December.10.2008 Nature takes precedence over architecture



In Japan it is common to find trees that are hundreds of years old and that have been shaped by generations of caretakers. This gives these 'natural sculptures' a significance that trumps the building of a house. It is one of the joys of living in a city when one comes across an instance such as this.
