Okomeya by Schemata Architects
Okomeya is located in Tokyo, Japan, designed by Schemata Architects. This rice shop is located on a modest-sized shopping street spanning 300 meters between the main shopping area and Togoshi Koen station. The street used to prosper with an array of small individual shops, but it has declined substantially and many shops had been closed down. As a consequence, the street is increasingly filled with closed shutters. If no measure is taken against the declining condition, it would eventually become a so-called shutter street and the shopping street would disappear.
