The tiles on the roof were lined up regularly, as if they had been copied and pasted.

The tiles on the roofs are all thick and magnificent. Although the number of tile-roofed houses is gradually decreasing, this place is famous for Tokoname pottery, so there are still many tile-roofed houses here.

Although roof tiles are only ornaments of a house, their presence is significant when you stare at them like this. I feel as if the tiles are the main character of the architecture. Even if they don't attract attention, they are still there, silently protecting the house on the roof, in a tight scrum. But when they are arranged so regularly, they look like they have been copied and pasted somehow.
