In the beginning many of housings in there were sold as investments but its value went down to more than half price through the economic crisis in Japan during 90s.
So where couldn’t have any community without real resitents. After the price went down even there are more residents than before, but many of housings are still empty.
Those buildings were getting old but still on sale exhibiting like full-size models at the same place.
