Mt. Fuji: serenemoonlight

Komasho

This post may be boring for some, as the place under consideration does not really appear to be in bad condition.

This place puzzles me.  It's apparently a home remodelling/building place, and is located a short walk from my house.  I have lived here for nearly 6 years, and as far as I know, this place has never been open in all that time; it seems to be another of those businesses that someone simply walks away from, leaving it more or less intact.

What fascinates me is that they left a large quantity of building materials in the covered-over storage area next to the building, and as you can see from the photos, while the building itself doesn't look bad, the building materials are not faring so well.

Not long ago I witnessed some children playing in the yard of this place, jumping up and down on some long pieces of plywood, and my first thought was, "Wow, if that was happening in the States, INSTANT LAWSUIT."  Here, nobody seems to be particularly worried about such things--if you can't keep your own damn kids out of trouble, it's your responsibility!

I decided to take these photos because I recently noticed some changes; there had been a long-disused doghouse outside of the building, but it's gone now; there's also another smaller storage building, with windows and a door, that appears to have been cleaned out, so I don't know if the place might be knocked down soon or what.

At any rate, I give you Komasho.
