You know Kei class cars and trucks? Kei is often use to describe Japanese keijidōsha statutory class vehicle, be it cars or trucks. OK. You probably knew that, but I bet you have never heard of Kei Truck Garden Contest, or as I would like to call it Kei gardens. Yup. There is such a thing and it is beyond awesome. What Kei Truck Garden Contest does is, it challenges landscape artists to turn the tiny bed of their Kei truck into beautiful gardens.
Kei Truck Garden Contest is an annual event sponsored by the Japan’s Federation of Landscape Contractors. Every year, droves of talented landscaping specialists from around Japan convened at the competition site to turn their tiny truck’s bed into stunning mini-size gardens. It is one thing to see miniature garden on your office desk and it is a whole new level of surreal seeing full-fledged gardens, sometimes complete with park benches and aquariums, packed onto the tiny constrain of a light truck’s cargo bed.
