Tokyo Rail Operator Explores 'Train To Table' Urban Farming

By

As urban farming becomes increasingly popular across the globe, Tokyo's most-used rapid transit system, Tokyo Metro, is dabbling in hydroponic farming in an unused warehouse space below the system’s elevated transit lines. 

The project, called Tokyo Salad, takes the idea of urban farming to the next level.

Tokyo Salad, however, is both using an under-utilized space and growing food where millions of people pass through every day.
