Le fin du fin

Faced with the scarcity of land resources, the Japanese exploit smaller vacant areas of their cities to erect buildings in a sometimes surreal finesse.

Constrained between two buildings, built at the tip of an islet or on a strip of land between two streets, these buildings or houses wonder. Each remaining space hosts a building with dimensions and spaces reduced to the extreme. From Osaka to Tokyo via Hiroshima and Kyoto, discover this remarkable selection of constructions discovered on the blog Bouncing Red Ball:
