Shot at Bikan historical quarter in Kurashiki, Okayama.
Many traditional architectures were preserved in this area. When I walked the narrow lanes flanked by the old buildings, I felt as if I became a time traveler. Because this area was a tourist attraction, these architectures were well fixed. The namako wall in front of me was painted with the plaster and spotless clean.
The wall was tiled. And a window with thick lattice was built. It was said that this kind of wall had a protective effect on the fire protection.
