A perfect place ...

... to abandon old cars, even though it's in the middle of a lively residential quarter. They don't look particularly old; but they havent' been moved since many months, and have several flat tyres. And while on the adjoining parts of this parking, not the slightest little bit of gras is growing, here nature is evolving almost freely. The owners often don't even bother to remove the license plate. Apparently, the japanese law isn't excessively strict about this kind of delict.

Sad state of affairs. No community pride.

How very strange - especially as it's the parking lot of a social housing building, belonging to the municipality.
In Germany, the authorities would just have the car removed and send it to the recycle facility, the owner being charged with all costs - plus a big fine
