Tokyo is a city that is constantly innovating when it comes to sustainability. In this video, we tour some of the city's sustainable initiatives, including a lab working on developing sustainable technologies, an eco-village, and a green corridor. These projects are all aimed at making Tokyo a more sustainable city, and offer practical lessons on how to live a sustainable lifestyle.

  • 00:00:00 Tokyo, Japan is a city on the rise, as it is one of the few places in the world that is experiencing a population boom while still being environmentally conscious. The city is home to a number of sustainable initiatives, including a lab where they are working on developing sustainable technologies. In this video, I'll be touring Tokyo's sustainable home, and talking to the family who lives there.
  • 00:05:00 This video discusses how a sustainable society is envisioned in Japan, and how the country is working to create this society through educational programs. The narrator introduces a variety of sustainable technologies in Japan, including solar passive cooling and an installation of Japan's solar system. The installation is filled with 32 air conditioners, and the narrator demonstrates his luck by having one air conditioner turn on by chance. Japanese homes traditionally have tea pots with teacups in them placed in different positions to gain good luck, and this installation is a replica of an old tradition. The narrator states that he would choose an agricultural lifestyle if he could, and the biotope installation creates a middle ground between the two. Finally, the video ends with a song and a reminder to viewers to come see the garden later.
  • 00:10:00 This video offers practical lessons on sustainable living, with a focus on Japanese school lunchrooms. The students present a variety of healthy, organic food items, and discuss how they are grown and preserved. One student demonstrates how LED lights are used to grow plants in a controlled environment, without the need for soil or sunlight. This project is being conducted in an underground room, and the students are harvesting lettuce that have long, unusual stems. The project is special because it is the first time this type of agriculture has been attempted in Japan, using only LED lights and water.
  • 00:15:00 Tokio is a city with a population of over 13 million people that is trying to develop an ecolocal agriculture that uses little to no pesticides or fertilizers, and which can be fed directly to urban centers without polluting the air. This video shows one example of this new form of agriculture. A group of tomatoes are grown in a container with a solution of water only, and without soil. This new form of agriculture is said to consume less energy, and could be a solution to our cities' overcrowding.
  • 00:20:00 This video discusses the challenges of sustainable transportation, and howTokyo is trying to solve these problems by developing new, more environmentally-friendly transportation options. One of these options is the development of electric cars. The professor in the video, Shimizu, shows us one of their prototypes, which has an impressive speed record - 370 kilometers per hour. They also aim to build the best electric car in the world. This would help to reduce the amount of energy that we need to use, and would also help to fight climate change. He believes that in the future, we will find a way to not depend so much on nuclear power.
  • 00:25:00 Tokyo, Japan is a city that is struggling with many environmental problems, such as water shortages and air pollution. One way to combat these issues is to use rainwater to irrigate plants and crops. This is the idea behind "Doctor Rainwater," a Japanese inventor who has developed a system to collect and store rainwater in large tanks. By doing this, Tokyo will be able to reduce its water usage, and the city's water problems will be solved.
  • 00:30:00 This is a video about the Tokyo Sustainable City Lab, which is a research center that focuses on the future of urban planning and architecture. The lab's main principle is to combine the imperative of construction with the use of high-technology materials in order to require less energy in Japanese society. The city, as the industrial human society, is transitional and temporary, rather than permanent. Currently, the life of the most trivial buildings does not exceed thirty years. The rapid cycle of demolition and reconstruction of Tokyo City is an exceptional terrain for creativity in architectural forms and materials. Tokyo is undergoing a metamorphosis with each new idea in architecture. Today, I accompanied Hello Kitty as she made her way to her office at the United Nations' International Media Development Center. We made the short walk together, and I was happy to meet her and see that she was already working with her colleagues. This is one of the reasons we don't use our car - it would take us two hours to make the trip on foot. In addition to the increased traffic, walking would take longer than that. Japan's fast cycle of construction and consumption has turned it into a society of waste-producing products. The country produces 24 million metric tons of disposable paper straws every year, and since
  • 00:35:00 In this video, Sentido Tokyo shows how they recycle used chopsticks by sending them to a factory to be turned into new objects. The chopsticks are then ground into virutas and turned into wood, furniture made from cardboard, or bio ethanol. The last container collected this month was amazing, as they collected a ton of horticultural waste. However, despite Japan having very strict recycling laws, there is still a paradox in that everything is recycled individually. Most Japanese households also have a supermarket open 24 hours, which leads to an excessive consumption. A peculiar system that compensates for the overconsumption is by providing recycling services very competent. There is no paper product in front of all supermarkets, and there are recycling containers near metro stations. Japanese people are very cooperative but the best waste is the one that does not occur. Most Japanese people recycle, though not all.
  • 00:40:00 Tokyo is hosting a workshop on sustainable living, and 2000 volunteers are planting 7000 trees in the city. The project is the brainchild of the city government, and Tadao Ando, the city's famed urban planner, will be attending the event today. Today's talk will be a quick and short introduction to the project, and then the volunteers will get to work planting trees. Each volunteer will plant 25 different types of trees, and every five years they will come back to care for the plants. The students from primary and secondary schools will also be participating in the project.
  • 00:45:00 Tokio is a city that is constantly looking for new ways to sustain itself, and one way it is doing this is by creating a green corridor from the bay to the center of the city. This corridor, called "Millennium City," proposes that green roofs and gardens be established on many of the city's buildings. It also aims to reduce the city's emissions by using green technologies. This video follows a journey through Millennium City, which is an experimental eco-community in Qatar.
  • 00:50:00 Tokyo has built a series of "eco-villages" to recreate a sustainable, community-based lifestyle. The first of these villages is located in an abandoned urban area, and aims to provide a model for restoring the city's environment and creating sustainable communities. The video shows the project's construction and highlights the village's sustainability goals.
