Visiting Shimokitazawa last week for a meeting, CScout Japan‘s Michael Keferl pointed out the (fake) forest surrounding the north entrance to the Shimokitazawa train entrance. It’s funny how I had failed to notice this endless forest.
It extends on three walls from the station all the way past the horizon.
Construction is a constant in urban Japan. It seems the rail line, landlord or construction company wants to add a natural “feeling.” Recently I saw a construction wall lined with real bamboo.
Are there other low-cost ideas for temporary construction? Something that can be re-used from site to site?
