My Front Porch


My Front PorchHere’s the view from my front porch. We chose this apartment for it’s beautiful surroundings. Can you tell? Actually, this is meant as a bit of humor. By choosing the time, conditions and direction for the photo, it looks pretty drab. Sometimes life is just about what angle you look at it.

Fumes are belching from the stack of our local public bath or sento (銭湯). It was the source of some mistaken impressions earlier. During the spring, I thought my kindly neighbor was burning plastic in his garden because the oil odor was coming into my study.

Once they get the water up to temperature the boiler furnace shuts down and the air clears up quick.

    That really is quite the view! But yes, I can see that it could look better under different circumstances. I’ve lived in some places with “lovely” views too.

    On a Sunny day, I’ll have to snap a couple photos highlighting the beautiful parts. Unfortunately, the bamboo grove got buzzed. I think they are going to pop up some new houses during the summer.
