This is one of those.
The other day I went to Azabu 10 ban station for a meeting. There I had to walk ten minutes, towards Ebisu station, to get to where I was going. On the way, I found this old beaten down and broken house.
The amazing part about this place is that someone actually still lives there which is evidenced by the laundry hanging out to dry!
Here is a street view from Google maps: http://bit.ly/mUcFPE
This building looks like it could fall over at any second.
But there it still is. Note the laundry hanging out to dry.
This is not newsworthy, nor is it earthshaking. I just think that I am going to take photos of these places whenever I see them. I can't imagine that this place will still be there standing in 30 years.... But, then again, perhaps someone said the same thing about this building 30 years before today too!
This also says a lot about strong building and earth quake proof construction in Japan.
