PhotoHunt: Old-Fashioned

Old-fashioned rice cookers and kettle at Takayama Jinya (old government building from the Edo period).

  1. Very cool! :) Those are certainly old fashioned, and heated in an old fashioned manner too - with wood. Great choice for the Hunt this week. :)

  2. Very nice! I especially like the kettle... they sure don't make them like that anymore, at least not here in the U.S.

  4. I love old-fashioned displays, seeing how things were done before modern technology came about. I wonder what the future holds for us . . .

  6. Dragonheart & Merlin- I can't imagine cooking and heating with wood these days. I quite like my electricity!

    JC- You can still find cast iron kettles here sometimes but they're heated on gas stoves not over wood fires these days.

    Utah Mommy- Thanks for stopping by.

    Literary Feline- And technology moves so fast nowadays who knows where the future will take us.

    Janet- I hadn't even paid attention to the sand, I was more interested in the shadow. :P

    quintarantino- I love seeing old style kitchens but I don't think I'd actually want one for myself. I can't imagine giving up my microwave and electric kettle! :P
