Old Town, Old Buildings.


I had the pleasure of being in Takasago, in Hyogo prefecture, for 3 nights on business.  If you’d ever been to Takasago, you’d probably wonder why I’d enjoy staying in a town that has a business hotel, a train station, a convenience store and, er, that’s it.  It’s what the Japanese call ‘Inaka’, basically very rural and quiet.  But because the town is so quiet, it also has many old buildings. This is my 2nd post, showing all the old, abandoned houses I could find.  Basically, I found one old, abandoned house, then started wandering around the back streets, taking photos of all the old , abandoned buildings I found.  Which was a lot.  So I’m just gonna put up all the pictures for you to enjoy, without any notes.  Hope you like them.

The last picture is of a massive pipeline which surfaces from underground in the middle of a housing estate, which is what first drew my interest.  It’s easily big enough to crawl inside.

Sorry for the all pictures together style, by the way, it’s not my normal approach, and I’ll try not to do it too often.

Out of interest, I’m writing this on the shinkansen to Hiroshima, using a Windows 8 tablet, a bluetooth keyboard, and tethering the data connection from my Lumina.  Ain’t technology great?

So, I’ve been to Shinagawa a few times for work, first couple of times I was really impressed, but now it’s a bit meh.
Still, it’s better than being stuck in the office…

Abandoned Clinic.

So whilst staying in Takasago, Hyogo prefecture, I started looking around for all the different abandoned buildings I could find, because there is basically bugger all else to do there.  And I found some great stuff, including this abandoned clinic and the connected house.


I tired the front door, and had a good look around, but it seems to be sealed up tight, so only pictures from the outside, unfortunately.



It was this bike stand that got ma attention in the first place…..

And last of all, the sign.


This is the first part of three reports from Takasago, I’ll leave the best for last…….

General Abandonment in Narumi.

So, I’ve taken a lot of photos of many abandoned places recently, but technical problems, combined with a hectic work schedule, are preventing me from publishing finished articles. To keep this place ticking over for now, here are a few random pictures I snapped on the way to Narumi station after walking over an hour to find another abandoned site.

Just to prove I’m still here, and still interested in this blog, here is a lovely picture of a river in Nagoya I took today.

Test post. And a Nice Picture of Sakae TV Tower in Nagoya.

New phone, new WordPress app, so I’m giving it a test.

This is Sakae TV Tower in Nagoya, on a cloudy summers day.

I can highly recommend windows phone, by the way.
