A smaller Japanese Wild Ginger that eventually clumps quite densely.  It looked good in our garden for many years but we dug it and potted it so we could share these and must plant some back.  Small heart-shaped leaves with an irregular central green isthmus flanked on either side by a froth of silver.  Small purple-brown flowers are not missed hiding under the fine leaves.  This looks like the form from Mt Takao based solely on web photos from habitat. Wish we had our own photos from Mt Takao!
