VICE | The Food and People of the Homi Projects

The Homi Projects are a massive housing complex consisting of 67 buildings located in Toyota City (where the car company got its name from) in Aichi Prefecture. Of the 7,000 residents who live there, approximately 3,000 of them are South American (mostly Brazilian and Peruvian), making it one of the most unique immigrant housing complexes in Japan. We follow acclaimed photographer Keisuke Nagoshi, who lived in the housing complex for over three years, on a tour through his old neighborhood as he catches up with various residents and indulges in the food they prepare.
