F-world

BY RYO IJICHI
@ BCCJ COMMUNITY HUB ON OCT 09, 2014

Ryo Ijichi is the director of F-World, which is working on the project of building a indoor facility for the kids in Fukushima. After the March 11th disaster, most of the children are left with no way to play outside, which is unfortunately leading them towards a unhealthy life style. The indoor park will be big enough to hold skate parks, gardens, concert venues, and much more for people to enjoy.
