Special issue on the "Vacant house"Now already 1 in 7 is a vacant house in Japan, rapidly the rate is increasing. In 2033, the rate of a vacant house is 33%, in other words, 1 in 3 houses will be not used.
The seasonal magazine "Social movement"'s special issue in this time is "Vacant house". There are many examples from east to west in Japan.
I interviewed in Sendai about Weekend-Home-Project "Nakayama-Modern-House". 3 young people rent an old characteristic house. Their catch fraise is "Making with fun makes the town fun". They use the vacant house for fun, I felt that "vacant house" is a problem of our society, but it's a chance for challenging people because they can rent.
