Mihara 三原。

So, it’s time to complete my report on Mihara, in Hiroshima prefecture. I covered the most interesting thing I found, the completely overgrown apartment building elsewhere, so now I’ll show you the rest, in chronological order.

So, getting off the shinkansen, I saw this in the station:

Mihara is famous for octopus, and octopus based products.

Sign behind says “Delicious! Mihara octopus”.

Leaving the station, I started the 20 odd minute walk to work. About to cross a river, I saw this:

It’s a gas storage tank. Not something you see everyday, bit v they often have cute pictures on like this in Japan.

Next, wandered down a side street, and found my first abandonment of the day.

Interesting a little house, with a ground floor garage and some nice rusty stairs going up to the second floor.

Gotta love those stairs! Some other nice detail along the front, too. Next, let’s look down the side.

Next, a couple of odd buildings and a nice mountain.

Then, I found this mostly abandoned apartment building.

Looks like some people were still living in the apartments at the far end, so I just took a few pictures.

And the other side.

Then I took the small road behind the left side of the apartment building. You can always find something abandoned in the small streets in Japan. And so I did. This house.

That yellow sign in the window it’s a for sale sign.

image

image

Not that I fancy their chances pig selling it. For one, there it’s, this massive crack.

And the fact that the massively overgrown garden smelt like a cat toilet. More accurately, it smelt like a cat had used the garden as a toilet, then died in there. It stank. It was a health hazard!

Still, it had a nice mailbox.

Then I found the overgrown apartment building, then out was off to Itozaki station to go home. But that was half abandoned, too!

The door to the building on the left.

And some pictures from the left hand side off this building.

This is the building on the right.

Then it was off to Mihara station, via Hiroshima Carp baseball team painted train!

Thanks for reading!
