Views of Japan

A cultural guide to Japan and its history that you won't find in guide books!

A rather beautiful old style house in Hadano, Kanagawa. The owner works for a nearby grave manufacturer, cutting granite slabs for graves. I love the little family crests that are used to hide nail studs along the top of the fence.

Yes, that wooden structure in the foreground with a roof on it and intricate eaves is a fence!
