ReBuilding Center JAPAN aims to reduce environmental burdens, and to create employment in smaller towns by effective use of reclaimed wood resource in Japan. We'd like to make people feel the reclaimed wood ideas more familiar to them by making accessible shop with a cafe.

Evaluation

The model that is being used in Portland, Oregon, mainly in order to create employment for the poor has been modified to fit the circumstances in Japan. In the midst of the current situation where used building materials from abandoned houses due to population decline are not widely distributed, it is a praise-worthy project that supports sustainability, brings in new people and encourages the diversion of waste by operating a cafe beside the store in an easy-to-access location which makes it the most familiar salvaged building material store in Japan. It is also commendable that the place functions as an education center.
