  1. Hi Joen. Just a quick note to say that the G-Cans Project is not a sewer system, I’ve no idea where you got that from.

    G-Cans is a flood control system. It’s designed to cope with the overspill from Tokyo’s waterways during the rainy season, typhoons, etc. It will not handle sewerage at all.

    IIRC, the entire system will be open to tourists! We can already see what great photography that will yield.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Oh how embarrassing! Twice in one month, I stand corrected by the same person!

    Thanks for pointing it out – it’s like food stuck in your teeth 🙂

    I’m there. I’m so there.

  3. LMAO – All hail the Discovery Channel!!! 🙂

    Hehe!

    Beautiful pics though. I simply got the sewer bit from a co-worker that passed it on via IM.

  5. Damn co-workers! 🙂

    I did a little hunting around on Google but, surprisingly, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of information available on the project.

    However, Boing Boing came up trumps (there they go again). “14000 horsepower turbines” – real ass-kickers! 🙂

    Wow. Makes more sense now, even.

    Reminds me of something Doug Chiang could’ve designed.

  7. Wow, Chiang’s artwork is awesome. Thanks for the link Joen.

    Hi, is this “sewer” system, which of course isn’t a sewer system going to be a tourist attraction? and why? We have the midieval canal turned into sewer system in Antwerp and it is opening up to the public after clean up by Aquafin. I am a city guide who often deals with Japanese and therefore would like to know. Thanks

    Well, I think it already is open for tourism. The main reason being that there is something inherently impressive about seeing such MASSIVE structures.
