More thin buildings

Lately I haven’t updated my collection of pictures of thin buildings but I’ve found this post in weburbanist with some pictures of extremely thin buildings in Japan. It is not rare to spot one of these buildings in Japan; I’m not sure but I think that the laws to partition the land are somehow special and that’s why sometimes you can find four buildings occupying the space that could be used for a single normal building.

    The 6th one down is just completely crazy – I don’t see how someone would even be able to walk in it.
