Tokyo's rooftop greenhouse

Tokyos takväxthus

To find Tokyo's few greenhouses you usually have to look up, here on the rooftops you will find large collections of cacti and succulents that are often worth a small fortune.

Rare plants are grown here, which usually end up with their loyal followers or in Tokyo's shopping malls and designer stores.

On our recent trip to Tokyo, we were lucky enough to visit Kakusen-en, a three-generation family-owned cactus greenhouse. they specialize in everything that grows in the desert and are particularly knowledgeable about species such as Astrophytum and Aricarpus.

Shirokane also houses a three-story building and headquarters for Botanize and their rooftop greenhouse. Here you can find a large collection of Pachypodium and even pick up a pot or two.
