How Tokyo Will Look

Tripadvisor Photo

This is a picture of Southern Ridge, Singapore and Tokyo will increasingly look like this if the Japanese population decline and migration to Tokyo continues. The latest statistics show that the population of Japanese national decreased by half a million last year and the trend is accelerating. One of the problems is that Tokyo’s population is growing as people move in for jobs, culture, heathcare and other urban benefits. Roughly speaking, they leave behind agriculture.

However, the beautify of Japanese countryside scenery has been the product of agriculture and forestry. In the absence of agricultural activities, Japan will be covered by bamboos and bushes like this.

Metaphorically, Singapore is tomorrow’s Tokyo, where skyscrapers are surrounded by forests and bushes which host wildlife of deer, bears, apes and wild boars.
