【Shizuoka Prefecture Designated Cultural Property Former Yoda Residence】 Heisei 22 (2010) (2010) The buildings of the Yoda family residence were designated as Shizuoka Prefecture designated tangible cultural properties (buildings). A total of five buildings were targeted: the main house built 300 years ago, the detachment built as a guest room 200 years ago, and the three warehouses (utensils, rice warehouses, and miso warehouses) built at the end of the Edo period. It is said that the main house was built over 13 years around the time of Genroku, and although the exterior is a private house with sea cucumber walls that is often seen in Matsuzaki, it is a complete fireproof building with plaster to the rafters of the eaves, and a copper plate fire door is built at the eaves. This building is a large-scale private house that was used as a residence for a wealthy lord, and is the second oldest private house in the Izu area.

Former Kiya Takeshi Family Residence / Okinawa World Ryukyu Kingdom Castle Town Okinawa World is located in Nanjo City in the southern part of Okinawa Prefecture. It is a registered tangible cultural property located in the castle town of the Ryukyu Kingdom, where red-tiled kominka houses that recreate the townscape of the Ryukyu dynasty are lined up. It is a private house built in the late Meiji era, and it is a building that miraculously survived the ravages of war in the most intense place during the war. (It was moved here from its original location.) It is now used as a hands-on workshop. There were quite a few people who experienced it ^^ It is a valuable building that I would like to preserve in the future.

Former Kiya Takeshi Family Residence / Okinawa World Ryukyu Kingdom Castle Town Okinawa World is located in Nanjo City in the southern part of Okinawa Prefecture. I went to the castle town of the Ryukyu Kingdom, which reproduces the townscape of the Ryukyu Dynasty era lined with red tile kominka, which is a registered tangible cultural property. The building in the photo is a private house that miraculously survived the ravages of war and was the site of the most intense ground battle of the Pacific War. On the pillars on the side of the corridor, the scars of shells received during the war were still vivid. (The building was moved here from its original location.) Since it was relocated, it has been used as a hands-on workshop. A very valuable building that tells the history of the Battle of Okinawa, I want to preserve it for a long time.

The five-storied pagoda of Ueno park looks very beautiful in every season. Ueno park is one of the most popular spots that hardly need any recommendations yet I want to recommend it because sometimes in a rush we somehow overlook a few things or spots that's why this post. Amid the colorless nature, the red pagoda and flower-printed Japanese umbrella in front of it formed a strangely beautiful scene.
Although the pagoda is almost covered in flowers during the sakura season, once on a peony flower exhibition day when I went there I stopped after seeing such a sight.
