A massive example of a gasshō-zukuri house. This is the one built by 1970s pop stars... http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/image/2010-03-12.html

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!

Somehow these buildings remind me of the old farms in Germany's Black Forest region.
