World's Tallest Aloe Vera Plant (Uncertified)

 Walking around the Waseda area, I came across the tallest aloe vera plant I have ever seen. It's difficult to be sure whether this is even aloe at all, but according to an old man in the neighborhood, that seems to be the story everyone is sticking with.

From afar, I thought I was looking at an abnormally tall chrysanthemum plant. These yellow flowers are no longer in full bloom.

 The leaves are the clearest indication that we are looking at aloe.

It really is a ludicrous sight.
