“The Japanese archipelago comprises roughly 7,000 islands, stretching over 3,000 kilometers, and over 60% of its land surface consists of mountains and volcanoes. Farming land accounts for only 13% of the total area, squeezing human habitation into a mere 4.5%. Over 80% of Japan’s population now lives in cities, and more than 60% of Japan’s food is imported. So …who needs the inaka anyway, these days?”
