This image is texturally beautiful, the colour, contrast and lighting are all really striking.

Simple but very effective, great colors. Is the chain some kind of lightning rod?

@Wolfgang Prigge: Thanks Wolfgang. I think the chain is decoration. There is a separate lightning rod - all old buildings such as this in Japan have one somewhere.
