This shop and home has apparently been standing for over 60 years. I know that as the owner told me. A man who was just out of frame on the right; very wisely sat reading in front of his neighbour’s house rather than his own.

Love the color of the house, makes it stand out even more.
Yes, it really does. Japan’s corrugated iron covered buildings come in quite a variety of colours, but the blue ones are probably my favourite.
Such an awesome find. It looks like the vending machines are holding it up! 🙂
It really is quite a place And yes, they do, don’t they? Let’s hope that’s not actually the case!
Wow, that place must make some interesting noises on windy nights.
I hope they don’t try and remove that load bearing vending machine!
I like the way the perspective makes it look like its sturdier neighbour on the left is leaning in to catch it if it does fall.
I know eh? And god knows what it’s like sleeping in that upstairs room…
Yes, I like that too. There to save the day, just in case!
