In front of a liquor shop on Waseda-dori. Last year's hyotan gourd plants (mistakenly labelled luffa plants) were so successful, the shop's owner was giving away seedlings for free. The left is your standard gourd, the right, a sennari gourd. I chose the sennari plant for sentimental reasons: they were abundant on the grounds of my kindergarten school, to the extent that the school was called Sennari Kindergarten.
