New West of TOKYO -After half century-

 In Japan that entered the period of rapid economic growth after the war, the population of Tokyo which became the center of the economy explodedly increased. For this reason, a huge estate that has 300,000 people living in was planned, and the construction of "Tama New Town" in the western part of Tokyo began in the 1960s. At the time, the housing complex was a modern, dreamy dream of a longing for dream life. Today's aging is the biggest challenge. Here I think that the problems of modern Japan are condensed. 

 戦後、高度成長期に入った日本では、経済の中心となった東京の人口が爆発的に増えた。そのため巨大団地が計画され、東京の西部にあたる「多摩ニュータウン」の建設が1960年代から始まった。当時、団地はモダンで憧れの住生活を夢見させるものであった。今は高齢化対策が最大の課題。
