Gifu Kakamigahara Incinerator

A five-minute drive from our house into the mountains and we’re at the Gifu Kakamigahara Incinerator. Yes, if you read Oh My Gomi – Part 2, you’ll realize this was the place I finally disposed of a bug infested, five-year-old bag of rubbish.

Living near an enormous, heavy duty incinerator 

The convenience of living so near to a giant incinerator outweighs the fear of toxic clouds or other environmental concerns. Okay, I realize there won’t be a nuclear meltdown, but I can’t imagine many people wanting to live with this “gasifying and direct melting furnace” in their backyard. 

We visit the incinerator regularly, the last time being when my wife cut down all our trees and I had to unload a car full of branches into the furnace. Unfortunately, I completely forgot to take a photo of the forest in my car until after it got turned to smoke.

Instead of that non-existant photo, I’ll show you a map of the incinerator in Kakamigahara, and thanks to the magic of Google Maps, you can look around and get an idea of where I live. Perhaps you’ll see Japan isn’t one huge, dense, urban sprawl after all!
