Infini Garden


Infini garden is a 16 storey block of flats, or if you prefer american, apartment block, with 389 units.

In Japanese its called a Manshon, derived from the english word mansion, though it bears little resemblance to the english meaning.


Built in 2008, its located on Island City, a man-made island in Hakata Bay, Fukuoka.


Apartments are very popular in Japan, though I can think of nowhere worse to live.

I have asked friends who live in apartments in local towns where there are an abundance of big, empty, houses, why they dont choose a house, and most say that it is the wife who prefers the apartment as there is less housework and maintenance to do.


Island City is part of a big urban renewal project for Fukuoka. As well as residential areas and a huge park there is a new container port and businesses with links to mainland Asia are encouraged to move here.

    very professional. It’s obvious you know your topic and you appear fervent about it. I’m developing a
