Pre-War Tour

Castle Bracken

Took a walk around my neighborhood today, my first time exploring streets I’ve walked by almost every day for the past ten months but never walked down. I am seriously regretting that, it was really cool. Encountered a few wooden homes that I can’t prove, but gave every indication of being pre-war structures, really neat given the almost total destruction of the city thanks to mostly wood construction and incendiary bombing. I’m sure other people have found pockets of pre-war architecture, if anyone has any recommendations I’m all ears, I’d love to see some more examples before I leave.

Spring was also in effect and many of the homeowners had their planters and flowers out. This curious example is not something I’ve ever seen before, I think it’s a fern? It’s similar-looking next-door neighbor had fiddleheads, but I’m not sure. Again, any information is welcomed…

Japan certainly has four seasons…I think I’m probably just getting older, but I do seem to feel them here more than I ever did back in the States…shrug. :)
