The image of Tokyo that most people have is probably that of tall buildings, concrete and glass, busy subway stations and masses of people. But in reality the vast majority of Tokyo is covered in an even mat of low profile but by foreign standards high density urban development. Get up in any tall Tokyo tower or building and as far as the eye can see you will find nothing but rooftops, stretching out into the far distance.

Most of Tokyo looks like this, the little town of Shinmaruko, even though it is technically located in the neighboring Kanagawa prefecture’s Kawasaki City’s Nakahara Ward. Nakahara Ward is one of the 7 wards of Kawasaki city and it has a population density of 15,640/km2 (40,500/sq mi). The little neighborhoods around Shinmaruko Station is dotted with small business, workshops, clinics, stores and services, often not bigger than western one car garage.

Fußball in Shibuya, Tokyo – mit Spitzenaussicht auf Shibuya-Crossing…

Get beneath the surface - The IJT Blog

For a long time, Japan has been famous for miniaturising -and often improving- pre-existing ideas. The Walkman, the Haiku, the Capsule Hotel, and even the Tamagochi can be seen as a few examples of this trend. While the game of Futsal traces its roots back to early 20th Century Brazil and Uruguay, it perhaps comes as no surprise that this widely-enjoyed miniaturised version of football has taken hold in modern Japan.


As a logical conclusion to a love of football coupled with a lack of space, many high-rise building owners in Tokyo began turing their rooftops into futsal pitches after the 2002 World Cup. Japan also formed its own professional futsal league, the F League, in 2007. The pitch pictured above is the Adidas Futsal Park, located on top of the Tokyu Building at Shibuya Station – right next to the famous scramble crossing. Looks like a lot of fun…
