He has named more than 1,500 new species and varieties of plants. Even though he lived in extreme poverty, he never ceased his passion for plants, purchased expensive scientific books, and filled his house with specimens. His life may seem reckless, but there is integrity as well as bankruptcy, both as a scholar and as a human being. He is a very attractive person. The capacity of Tomitaro Makino, a scholar without peer, is immeasurable.
