A welcoming gate



An entrance of a Japanese traditional style house which I really like. It has wooden door which seems so heavy but I can't show you here. I took this picture yesterday afternoon, and spent a while in front of it, luckily the neighborhood is always quiet. Wish someday the owner will let me in :) and wish you all a nice weekend.

Wow, that’s great, Henny. I love the light and shadow playing across this scene that we could have just about seen hundreds of years ago as well as today.

I’m sure they have a salon that would be the perfect place for a koto and shakuhachi recital.

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
