    Hi, I’ve been walking past station square in Metrotown, and am wondering what the name is of the tree on the right of the photo. It looks like a Japanese maple. But I am not sure.

    Yes, one of the many Japanese Maple cultivars.

    Compare with 'Koto No Ito'.

    @Jaeson Mok good morning. This is of the Linearilobum group of maples or often referred to as Strapleaf. Koto no ito or Koto ito komachi are favourites for ID. A finer version is Fairy hair.
    All three could be the one you are looking at, but a closer photo may be needed.
