Social Innovation, Collobrative Economy around Asia

JP:Scrap into Alive”Haizai Project”


The Haizai can be tresure. Tokyo’s old town Sumida is the place where Small Medium Sized Factory is buched up together as craftsmen used to reside during the Edo period. Now New Tokyo Tower called Tokyo Sky Tree is located. Sumida has over 3,400 manufacturers. Leather, Wood, Urethan, Alminium, Luber, Fiber, Metal, Plastic…various kinds of materials are used and reprocessed.
The common issue here is Waste Material. Modern successors try to transform waste material into something practical and arty, which gives people more fun.
