Japanese Narrow Buildings

japanese-narrow-buildings-7

As we saw before, Japanese realtors consider no crevice beneath their notice, as long as it is in a central urban area. In this gallery you can see more of their addled creations.

In the interests of not perpetuating false stereotypes about Japanese urban architecture, I should point out that these buildings are regarded with incomprehension even by Japanese, most of whom would not care to live in one. They are far from commonplace.

Needless to say, there is also no question of these being Photoshop creations; I and many of you have personally seen examples of such.

As one Japanese wag put it, “Truly a niche industry!”
