A Day on the Water, Ushimado 9

A small farm on an island near Ushimado. Notice the shed near the waterline!

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!

That farm is so tidy. The shed looks as though it almost got washed away.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve. I wondered why they even bothered keeping the shed there...

May be the shed had moved during a typhoon?

@akarui: Possible, Olivier!

A reminder of a typhoon, maybe...or a landslide......This is quite a familiar type of view in Japan and whenever I see one such image I wonder for the thousandth time WHY do they build so close to the shore? In a country where people live with earthquakes and tsunami and typhoons and landslides this attitude appears to me as suicide! Or...a kind of fatalism that I cannot comprehend!

@Japanalia: Ah but the Inland Sea is quite well protected isn't it?

Yikes, that shed seems to be not in very good shape at all.

@bluechameleon: It's seen better days for sure!

Looks a little like a model.
