Talking with Trees

 This issue is dedicated to Tokyo’s unsung hero the tree.

 It’s interesting to be writing about trees in the midst of a global human pandemic but in many ways they may be our saviors. They stand both connected to one another while simultaneously firmly rooted to the earth. Something we humans are finally realizing is critical for the long term survival of our species.

 For this issue we at Papersky masterminded a 60km route that literally spirals the city while showcasing some of Tokyo’s: Oldest, Biggest and most Unique trees and green spots. The course winds over six sections which can be navigated as a thru-hike or ride; but even more refreshing is to explore the course over two or three days. Thus allowing ample time to take in the trees as well as some of Tokyo’s history and gastronomic culture.

 We’ve dubbed the course the TOKYO TREE TREK or simply the TTT

 Our aspiration is that as people explore the TTT;  they will come to see Tokyo through greener eyes and with greener eyes will be enlightened to protect, hug, and converse with the beautiful wooden beasts that line our city’s streets, shrines and parks.
