I'd read that in Spain, hot peppers are grown mainly as decorative flowers, and not for eating. On the other hand, the Japanese don't really like hot spicy food, so it's extremely rare to see peppers grown anywhere at all.
I was walking along the main drag in front of Dolphin Port when I saw these plants next to a beauty salon. They're most likely just for decoration. I'd be tempted to take them to eat, but the close proximity to the heavy traffic on the street makes me think that they might not be all that safe...
