Living Room in Your Town

JUN KITAZAWA OFFICE YAKUMO

At the Higashi-Oizumi children’s house where local children come to play, new citizens wearing bigger-size children clothes started to visit.

Those new citizens always carried a small journal.  As they took notes of the center’s everyday life, they tore off the page and stuck them on the wall.

Children noticed themselves, described or drawn on those pages. Some children were glad to see them, some wondered, some ignored them, and some imitated the new citizens.

The new citizens then took another action; they started activities such as open discussions, map-making, fixed-point observation, pretend and play house/store.  Those activities involved the children too, who became curious about “the new citizens” - the new kids on the block.  They sometimes did activities together.  New citizens became part of the center’s everyday life.
