Machinami Shukei Jigyo (Townscape Beautification Project) is the name of the group from 1980-87 that beautifully reconstructed the Obusedo grounds from the perspective of the local residents. They held many talks giving equal standing to the government, corporations, and private citizens, and were able to form an arrangement favorable to all through trading or leasing land. This new way of creating a beautiful townscape with harmony between new and old structures relying only on the effort of the citizens, not government subsidies is called the "Obuse Method" and has held the attention of the entire nation to this day.
