Toyota Housing Corp. of Japan started on July 18, 2009, selling houses in a new "green" residential development in Kasugai City, Aichi Prefecture. The ceremony to celebrate the opening of the development was held on the same day.

The residential development is large, featuring 171 lots in total. Each lot is equipped with an underground water tank to store rainwater for home use. The use of rainwater will not only reduce water consumption but also reduce energy consumption at water filtration plants, thereby saving overall power consumption in the district.
