    My first thought was of oriental bittersweet also. But from what I can see of the photo, the leave seems to be elliptic-ovate (egg shape). Oriental bitter sweet leaves tend to be more round. They also have slightly different venation . The leaves arrangement look opposite instead of alternated like of that oriental bittersweet. The longer fruit stems on the photo seem to be more like that of Euonymus. But I only have the photo to ‘guess’ from. You saw the plant in person, so you could be right. Best wishes!

    This might be a type of Euonymus. Sorry, I can’t tell which species or cultivar this is. If this is growing in the wild it could be Euonymus fortunei. According to sources, it has been identified as nonnative invasive plant. If this is growing in a garden, then you might want to check out others species and their cultivars. There are E. japonicus, and E.kiautschovicus. http://www.invasive.org/browse/subinfo.cfm?sub=3024
