Sakabayashi or Sugidama

Have you ever seen a giant ball of cedar before? If you are in Japan, you'll probably see one and wonder what it is. It's a sakabayashi or sugidama and is usually found outside an establishment that sells quality sake (according to the Japan Times). This one that I spotted was located outside a restaurant along my walk from Tokyo Midtown to Nishi-Azabu crossing.

Nikon D600 with Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF @ 80 mm, f4.0, ISO 100, 1/80 sec.
