Shopper’s Diary: Buriki No Zyoro in Tokyo

September 16, 2015

At gardening shop Buriki no Zyoro (the name translates as Tin Watering Can) in Tokyo’s leafy Jiyugaoka neighborhood, flats of flowers and plants spill out onto the sidewalk:

The shop has two floors of eclectic inventory: from flowers to potted succulents, planters, tools, seeds, and vintage garden accessories the owners found in the South of France.

A vintage iron garden bench and potted plants are among the shop’s offerings.
