I’d like to know about this house.  It appears to be made out of some sort of dirt and is roped off and abandoned.  Miraculously, it survived THE EARTHQUAKE and looks pretty much the same now as it did before 3/11, cracks and all.

Who lived here?  Why was it built?  When was it built? Why hasn’t it been knocked down and replaced by a parking lot?

It’s a mystery.

But I like riding my bike past it.  It remembers me of a long ago era when all the boys had boze haircuts and all the girls wore yukata and geta.  Or maybe before that even?  When all the men wore cho-mage haircuts?  Who knows………..
