Details du projetAs the biggest megalopolis in the world, Tokyo is a densely populated urban area full of high buildings and crowded shopping centres. But the city’s inhabitants are more and more craving for nature. Foreigners don’t necessarily have the chance to see it but Tokyo is getting greener and greener. Especially, rooftop gardening is increasingly trendy in Tokyo. Dozens of projects have arisen since the mid-1990’s. Some of them are ordinary gardens, others are community gardens that offer an opportunity for Tokyo inhabitants to grab some soil and enjoy nature. This other side of Tokyo seems to be a response to a frantic way of life and are an alternative way of enjoying the city.
