According to The Asahi Shimbun, buildings in the capital’s Otemachi business district are looking increasingly green and lush, as developers turn to plants, trees and even farms to win over office workers seeking more refreshing work environments.
Mitsui & Co. and Mitsui Fudosan Co. are at the forefront of the trend, having made available one of the largest green spaces in the district.
Soon after the Otemachi One Garden opened near the Imperial Palace at noon on Dec. 16 in the northwestern area of Otemachi, it quickly filled with visitors on their lunch breaks.
The 6,000-square-meter green zone is located where there used to be an open space beside Mitsui & Co.’s previous headquarters. The land was developed alongside Mitsui & Co.’s new main office building and the Otemachi One Tower complex, which was constructed in 2020.
