A Plot of Land Now City Property

A piece of property across the street from the Gyotoku Bird Sanctuary.

It's a mini garden and farm that has been lovingly tended to. It seems to be the trend in this area: build a new house and purchase some extra land to grow some vegetables and plant some flowers. Such a simple ideal is very difficult to accomplish when you live in such a densely populated area.

An old-fashioned furnace. It appears to be in working form.

Sad news, though: the area was bought by the city of Ichikawa at the end of last fiscal year (March 2013), and the owners have been ordered to vacate the land. The could do everyone in the area a huge favor and turn it into a community garden.
