An interesting article about a group that is trying to protect their neighborhood view of Mt. Fuji. New buildings keep being built taller and taller. The solution I propose? Just build a public park on top of each of those new buildings. Kind of like the public plaza or “sky lobby” in the new San Francisco Federal building. Easier to impose that kind of building code than force developers to scale back their projects.
“I can’t imagine Nippori without Mount Fuji,” Mr. Kaneko said. “But it is probably just a matter of time before another building appears that will block what’s left.”
