It's old House2! - Monochrome Monday


Would you care for some drinks?

Yes, I would like a Japanese tea.

And I'd like rice!


This old house is a showpiece.

The real old house is to the country.

This is a park near my house. Kawashima kankyou rakuen.

Lovely, Kazu. It's been almost fifty years since we lived in Yokosuka for three years and I would love to come revisit. Your photos are beautiful and inviting.
