Four companies rooted in Ikebukuro will work together to promote migration in the city and create a city that makes you want to walk.
What is Green Boulevard?
In 2016, it was certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism as an applicable area for the National Strategic Road Occupation Project, and used the road space to create "international theater space (art festival)", "communication creation (open cafe)", and "busy creation" ( Projects such as "Marche)" have become possible, and various events are being held.
Through a social experiment conducted to make Green Boulevard a more comfortable space, Toshima Ward has begun to improve the planting belts along the road, street lights, benches, etc., and it is gradually changing to a comfortable space. ..
