Decay in the Seto Inland Sea

 

Decay

 

Even if they make great photo subjects, abandoned houses on the Seto Inland Sea islands are always a bit depressing. A constant reminder that their survival hang only by a thread.

I don’t remember where I took this picture (it was a few years ago), most likely Ogijima or Megijima. I like how it shows that traditional houses in Japan are built in ways not too different from medieval houses in Europe, that is with wattle and daub (not sure if it’s the appropriate term, I had to look it up), except that the wattle is made of bamboo.
