The City of Morioka...and Depachikas!

November 25, 2019

While I was touring the city of Morioka, Japan, I also stumbled upon an amazing department store in the basement of an amazing building.  Soon after, I began researching these amazing basement shopping centers (named Depachikas).  Since one project influenced another, I put them together for this video.
