Growing sidewalk rice in styrofoam box

I wonder what this sidewalk rice tastes like? Will the gardener make a special meal with it? It’s great to see how enthusiastic people are to grow the most basic Japanese food, using a recycled styrofoam box. This same gardener is also growing cherry tomatoes and ornamentals. I like the juxtaposition of street, plants, and laundry hanging to dry.


  1. Hello there
    I’m a freelance writer and working on a piece for The Ecologist at the moment about people growing food in what might be considered strange or odd places around the world. I was wondering if it might be possible to talk to you about the Tokyo Green Space Project?
