Willow Trees in Ginza

When we went to the kabuki theater we saw many willow trees in the Ginza area. This one is among ume trees. This willow tree still has (or it already has) leaves.

This one is beginning to get leaves. See the sign at the foot of the tree? I jumped out of the car to take this picture. I wish I had crossed the street to see what it says, but I couldn't. It probably gives the name of the tree. Yanagi is willow in Japanese. That is Baba's maiden name.

This is a really young tree. Click on the picture to enlarge it. See the wooden support at the foot of the tree? Actually, there is a support behind the tree in the picture above.

These pictures were taken on the 5th of February. They probably have more leaves by now. Click on the pictures to get a better view.
