Two weeks ago I visited a place underground where they raise plants with artificial light. It is in the Marunouchi area next to Tokyo station, I was very surprised to see what they are doing below all those skyscrapers in Maronouchi.
These are some of the pictures I took. In some of the rooms the light was so shinny I had to use sunglasses, it was like going out to the street in a clear summer day.
These two plants are growing with LED light.
A rice pad.
Can you find the pumpkin?
More LED plants
Girls preparing salads made with lettuce and herbs grown underground.
I ate this salad, it was pretty good.
They were selling groceries grown underground with artificial light.
And this is how it looks like upstairs, above the place I just showed you in the pictures. Pretty amazing right?
