I have always wondered why so many Japanese plants are pruned...I can't remember seeing very many shrubs or trees that were ever left to grow completely naturally - this is in Tokyo and also in Narita Village. Is there a reason for the trimming or is it just something that people like to do?

@Adiemus: Well I've heard its to do with minimising damage if there's a typhoon, but I don't know if that's true or not... especially as there are countries that get far more severely battered by typhoons than Japan! Can anyone else enlighten us...?
