Tokyo Damage Report

you be the judge!!!

 

 

 

below – the store signs are wider then the building!!

these spectacularly narrow buildings are called PET ARCHITECTURE. They are a defining characteristic of urban Japan, – wedging buildings into the most tiny, leftover scraps of land.

And they supposedly come from a traditional custom of a parent subdividing his land equally among all his children – instead of giving all the land to the eldest.

For more information, check out the book "PET ARCHITECTURE" on Amazon.
