Window On Namako Wall

Window on wall

A window was built on the wall

Shot at Bikan Historical Quarter in Kurashiki, Okayama.

There were many old fashioned architectures in this quarter. This house in this photo seemed to be also old. It had Namako wall. And a window was seen on the wall. I heard the design had an effect of the fire protection. Yet I thought if there were any windows, the wall lost its potency. The fire could enter from the window.

Anyway, these houses had a flavor of the tradition. When I watched the design of the wall, I felt as if I got sucked into the maze because the same pattern went on and on.
