Houses in the Trees, Wakayama

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 22 June 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture.

One of the professors at my university took us to his place in Wakayama prefecture for a barbecue after we finished his course. It was a beautiful and peaceful location...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Amazing how the houses just pop up from between the trees. Lovely colour saturation as always.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Cape Cod house in the foreground. A mixture of New England and Japan.

@Twelvebit: Yes; very interesting, and not usual in Japan...

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Of course the location is beautiful, at least when the trees have leaves, the houses really look like perrching in the trees! Are there no landslides in the area?

@Japanalia: I have no idea Gabriela. Our professor said how solid the house was, with steel supports and foundations bolted down to the underlying bedrock (these houses are typically three stories... quite narrow but innovative design...)
