Originally from Okazaki, Japan... you can read about it's history here.

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!

Very interesting story at the site you offered us to read. What a wonderful thing to take such a house from Japan and bring it over into UK! It has the best of location among the bamboo trees.

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela. It is interesting to realise it's 'the real deal' when you see it, not a reconstruction.
