Building gap



One of the most common features of buildings in Japan is the gap that you get when two buildings are right next to each other.  Occasionally, these gaps are only 6" wide, but people still manage to use them for storage or trash disposal.  No idea how they plan to get the stuff back out... I'm surprised there aren't more stories in the news about children and small pets getting stuck in here.

In one of the shops in Akihabara (probably near Comic Toranoa, but not actually it) has an outdoor staircase at the back, where you can see down some of these narrow, tiny alleys. There's air con units in them, I don't envy the repair men having to fix those on a hot day
