Leaving Takayama: Suburban Houses

Posted by

Very typical Japanese houses. You can see the more modern style on the right side and in the background. Notice that the houses are surrounded by rice fields; another example of the local small-scale farming typical of Japan.

The last shot from the Hida region of Japan... coming soon, Nagoya!

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!

I like that they tried and keep the traditional style! Fine capture.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve!

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

The house on the left is more traditional. We can see, from the one on the right, that modern houses are inspired on traditional ones.

@António Pires: That's right António; but the one on the left isn't so old I think... Thanks!

Marc from France

Modern style tries to make us think that it's an evolution, but I really prefer the old one!!
All is coming to be the same architectural in all the world!!

@Marc: Merci Marc!

Michael from Shell Village, United Kingdom

This view shows something of a community, the houses look good too in this lovely setting.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

They have sort of a too perfect model-like appearance.

@Twelvebit: I know what you mean. A common Japanese style.
