Edo Era Ecology
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Edo Era Ecology" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 72, author and historical researcher Azby Brown shows us what it's like to live in a sustainable city during the Japanese Edo Era.
According to Azby, Japan started to experience environmental degradation after deforesting the majority of their country, but reversed it in just over a generation. Check out his book on the topic, "Just Enough: Lessons in Living Green from Traditional Japan".
