If I don’t record them now, they will disappear in 100 years. (1920, Wilson)

Ernest Henry Wilson, famous as a plant hunter in the Asian region, visited Japan between 1914 and 1919, introduced cherry and azaleas to Western Europe, and contributed to the development of Japanese botany. Not only did he discover and collect plants, but he also left many photographs. Even in Tokyo, a big modern city that has undergone a dramatic transformation, remain the old days scenery, lifestyle, and trees.
