Ugly Beautiful.

Wandering around near Nagoya station, I came across this brutal looking building.

On closer inspection, it looked mostly abandoned, but maybe people were still living there.

There was some graffiti, too a rarity even now in Japan.

The pictures do it more justice than my words can, so I’ll let them speak for themselves.

I do like the contrast between the old, rotting building and the bright yellow moped, though.
