This blog will continue show the photos that I take as I live and vacation in Japan. I particularly love to walk and have a strong interest in Buddhism and Shinto so I will be showing the temples, shrines and other interesting things that I discover.
Very near where I play Go on Saturdays, an apartment building burned. I've showed pictures of the building with much of the top floor burned off. I've also shown the empty lot after the building was torn down. Now the space looks like this. The word around the neighborhood is that the own has decided to build a new apartment building but instead to build a new home using the insurance money.
Also nearby I found this rather interesting Japanese garden beside the traditional home that you can see in the background. The garden consisted almost entirely of trees, most trimmed in the manner of those on the right.
