PhotoHunt: Reflection

I think I've posted this photo here before (and I'm too lazy to check) but it's the first one I thought of for this week's theme of 'reflection'. Hard to believe it's been almost a year since we visited the traditional town and World Heritage Site of Shirakawa-go.

  4. This photo reminds me of the Korean drama I saw few months ago. But I could be wrong...

    Cheers,

  12. Thanks everyone for stopping by and your kind comments!

    Nita - This is a traditional mountain style house in rural Japan. I don't know if they have or had anything similar in Korea. It's possible I suppose.

    Joy - Well I'm glad you didn't mind seeing it again. :)

    Thanks Nancy!

  15. That's a gorgeous shot. (I hadn't seen it before, as this is my first time stopping by your site.)

    I've seen buildings with a similar A-frame structure in the mountains of Colorado--I hadn't realized they were also a traditional Japanese structure. (I did know that the steep grade of the roof is good for places that get a lot of snow--something that Colorado and the region in your picture seem to have in common.)

  16. Sreisaat - We don't usually get snow here around Tokyo either so I loved visiting that area.

    alejna - Thanks for stopping by! Yes I think A-frame houses are pretty common in areas that get heavy snow. These traditional ones are still made entirely with wood and thatched roofs, and were quite interesting to see. :)
