Two square meters fields

Somewhere near Shinagawa in Tokyo I found a place near the bay filled with mini-fields. The neighborhood can use those “fields”. Families in the neighborhood with a member who is younger than 21 or older than 60 have the right to use one of those two square meter areas. The size is minimum, but I think is an excellent idea to give happiness and keep people in contact with nature in this huge city.

Look at the water deposit in the first picture, the water is also free.

    That’s a pretty nice idea. It can get people together and get them more in touch with nature… cause the only other thing that can do that is hanami and most people use that as an excuse to eat and drink 😀

    It is a good idea. Too bad it would never work in the USA. People here would probably rudely trample or otherwise damage them.

    Creating harmonious relationships is another way of saying Japan, no?

    They have these in Britain too, they’re called Allotments, there’s some in my village and certain houses “come with” one.
