Outline

There is a 4m height difference between Minami-makigahara Station and the surrounding area. Due to a renovation project we created a new plaza that incorporated the height difference with terracing that imitates rice paddies. Not only does the station fit into the surrounding area but provides a great area for activities for local residents. In addition, we have the minamaki Lab, community centre adjacent to the plaza. This facility is a great place for all members of the community from residents to businesses to university and local government to come together to reinvigorate this great town.
