Kirei




The same house I posted yesterday. I love the details in every traditional house in Saijo. It's either a place of worship or a museum. Perhaps it's only open during the sake festival. I couldn't enter as you can see there's a barrier on the stairs up to the house..
* Kirei = beautiful

this is a wonderful building and your photos are excellent. I really like the first two photos. The first one is so dramatic. Thanks for your comments. I did post a larger photo of the entire Chihuly Mexican Horned glass today on my site. I liked yesterday's photo better but I though people might want to see what yesterday's photo actually looked like as part of the bigger glass art installation.

This is mind reading: I was just wondering if you could post some more images of this "kirei" house.
