Long in the Roof

Is this old? ...yes, it is bloody archaic!

This is the oldest abode I've yet discovered in Tokyo, a tumbling down hovel I accidentally discovered today in someone's enormous backyard in Ōokayama - yep, the same wonderland I explored in my last entry (see below).

I had to climb a fence and was harassed by an over-friendly Corgi "guard-dog" (it made me wonder if Queen Liz was in town), but was able to rattle off a few pics.

Any idea on how old it is?

Nah, and I felt a bit weird asking the owners of the newer house next to it, since I'd basically broken into their backyard to take he picture! But probably Meiji period at the oldest. Really hard to tell, it's such a mess.
