Due to the impact of the new coronavirus, the number of vacant houses and vacant stores has accelerated in each region of the country. “Urban spongy”, where unused real estate stock is generated randomly, is becoming apparent. Considering such vacant land as a valuable regional resource, how to regenerate and utilize it is a major issue in terms of regional revitalization. In addition to vacant stores in Ginza, a city that represents Japan, there were many buildings that were being reconstructed due to aging, etc., and the most valuable land space in urban space was becoming an unused resource. Therefore, now that the corona disaster is converging, as part of the Tokyo Creative Salon, we have planned "GINZA POET-GRAPHY" to turn these unused resources into tourism resources and make Ginza a model case for attracting new customers and excursions. is.

"GINZA POET-GRAPHY" is an installation work developed in 13 locations in the Ginza area. By posting different modern poetry of graphic design on unused resources such as the walls of vacant stores and temporary construction fences, which have been difficult to use until now, it will be a new device to attract customers and make a trip as a photo spot for Reiwa's "Gin Bra". transform. In addition, by releasing a music video in which these poems transform into a single message as music, we will work on a completely new urban media utilization of "vacant land x modern poetry x music".

This measure has received cooperation and support from land owners, general contractors, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Chuo Ward, as well as commercial facilities and restaurants in Ginza, centered on the Ginza Association. This will only be realized when the entire city of Ginza becomes a “one team”. We hope that this measure will serve as a hint for new regional revitalization throughout the country.
