Collection of 100,000 Unwanted Toys

The exhibition, titled “Central Kaeru Station — Where Have All These Toys Come From?” may look like a kid’s paradise but it’s also a poignant reminder of how we’ve become a society of mass consumption. The silver lining is that after the exhibition, Fuji recycles these unwanted toys by giving them back out to community groups. In addition, 3331 Arts Chiyoda, the gallery where the exhibition was held, encouraged people to bring in their old toys and swap them out with others, further promoting the idea of recycling.
